Westminster International Ltd announces that it has launched a major new office operation in Nigeria

Westminster International Ltd has launched a major new office operation in Nigeria under a formal Franchise Agreement and under the name Westminster Security Solutions Nigeria Ltd ("WSSN") dealing with the entire range of Westminster’s products and services.

WSSN will initially operate from new regional headquarters in Abuja and plans to roll out further offices in several key cities and states in the near future, with all the technical and administrative support services required, creating a strong presence throughout the country.

Commenting on the new operations, Peter Fowler, Chief Executive of Westminster Group, said:

"I am delighted to be able to announce the launch of Westminster Security Solutions Nigeria Ltd., our latest franchise operation which we believe has significant growth potential.

"Nigeria is a key target market for our Group services. It is one of the fastest growing economies in the world and Africa’s most populous nation. Nigeria has recently passed its security budget for 2012 which is the equivalent to $5.8 billion USD and in addition there are substantial opportunities for our products and services in the oil & gas markets as well as other commercial sectors. We are currently looking at a number of sizeable project opportunities from the region and are receiving high levels of enquiries for our services from both the public and private sectors.

"To be successful in many local markets it is important to have a strong local presence and the launch of WSSN provides that presence. We are very optimistic about the future prospects for this operation and anticipate securing major business in the region."
