A statement on the website reads:
As the first online portal to reach 1,000,000 Facebook likes in Nigeria, naij.com is grateful for the support of our readers all over Nigeria and around the globe.
Just less than two years in the market, Naij.com receives 500,000 average visits per day and 9million average per month. Naij.com has not rested on its oars to bring its readers qualitative content and effective advertising campaigns.
In the area of advertising, naij.com brings an unparalleled approach to clients thereby giving them amazing results to help improve their market reach.
We have not only entered the market to deliver qualitative content to the average Nigerian, we aim to be the name on every Nigerian citizen’s lips when it comes to news, job vacancies, jokes, music, and events. Naij.com is not slowing down until this is achieved.
We will like to thank out avid readers and subscribers on Facebook, out Twitter followers and everyone who reads our content.
We could not have gotten where we are without you. We also thank our various clients for trusting us to associate with their brand.
In the coming weeks, months, and years, we promise to deliver better services to all our clients and qualitative content to our readers far and wide.
It remains to be seen if this milestone can be translated into becoming Nigeria's No.1 web portal in terms of traffic. At the moment, Nairaland holds that position having briefly relinquished it to Vanguard newspaper's website in 2012.
