Word going around is that the Federal Government (FG) of Nigeria has placed orders for 53 gold-plated customised iPhones from Gold and Co, a British luxury products company, for the celebration of the country’s 53rd Independence anniversary.
A Bristol-born businessman based in Dubai, Mr. Amjad Ali, told The Independent of the United
Kingdom on Wednesday that the Nigerian government had joined his growing list of clients, including royal families, governments and minted
customers across Russia, China and the Middle East.
The 42-year-old entrepreneur, who grew up in Glasgow, specifically said his company, Gold and Co, was working ahead to fulfil an order from the Nigerian government for 53 gold iPhones to mark the country’s 53rdyear of independence on October 1st.
“We will engrave them with the coat of arms, a shield and two horses,” he said, while referring to
the Nigerian orders.
