Welcome to Iqra Books Online
Introduction and background
In 2003, the Iqra Books was established under the umbrella of "Iqra Ventures". It was conceptualized by two partners who felt the need to make available original books and educational materials at affordable prices. At inception, the primary objective of Iqra Books was purely on selling original religious books produced all over the world. Subsequently, the objective was extended to cover all other books published by Nigerian authors and foreigners.
Iqra Books has extensive network and partnership arrangements with different publishers worldwide including Butterworth, Darussalam, Pearson Longman, Spectrums, etc. It has pioneered an innovative way of meeting the needs of customers for books and educational materials using advanced technology and e-commerce to deliver quality services.
Iqra Books is a registered limited liability company. It has a number of professional staff and support staff. It aspires to be the foremost bookstore in Nigeria. Its headquarters is located at 12 Ilofa Road G.R.A Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria.
The philosophy of the company is to think globally and act locally. Focussing on all collectable educational materials (soft and hard), our outreach transcends the shores of Nigeria with a contact address in Ghana.
In addition to being a distributor of books in all human endeavours, Iqra Books also partners with international and local publishers to publish well-researched educational materials and books at reasonable prices. The volume of transactions has grown tremendously, with customers placing orders on our website www.iqrabooks.com.ng from around the world, from Albania to Syria and UK. The company has just been re-branded and its present focus is to spread its activities to other jurisdictions that are yet to be covered.
