“To each, there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a special thing, unique to them and their talent. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour” – Sir Winston Churchill.

This quote is an all-time favorite because it speaks to the power of seizing time and harnessing opportunities as they present themselves. The tragedy as Sir Winston Churchill points out, is when those big moments come and you’re unprepared, unqualified, or just plain unbothered to step into it.

Another big moment is here and the time to act is now. 

Recall that Nigeria’s leading telecommunications company, MTN announced that it is now selling up to 575 million shares in MTN Nigeria to retail investors in a public offering priced at N169.00 per share. This automatically confers part ownership of MTN to every investor.

MTN is offering all shareholders strong dividends and strong growth as its dividends are continuously growing. 

At the recently concluded roadshow in Enugu State, the Chief Executive Officer, MTN Nigeria, Olutokun Toriola stated that MTN wants as many Nigerians as possible to own a share in the company and to benefit from its growth.

Other reasons to invest in MTN shares is the fact that MTN is a well-managed and uniquely positioned company. MTN is disciplined and has a board of directors that oversee what they do including auditors who always do their due diligence and a group that also ensures the company delivers on expected profit margins.

The minimum subscription is for 20 shares, with subsequent lots of 20 shares. The Offer includes a bonus of one free share for every 20 shares purchased, up to a total of 250 free shares per investor.

With just N3,380, all Nigerians above 18 years can become part owners of the telecom giant.
