Nigerian leader says that at goment dey is implementing a number of policies and programs to ensure institutions like MTN create a favorable environment for doing business in di contri.
MTN is one of the largest telecommunications networks within the West African countries.
The development of Nigeria’s digital economy is making the telecommunications sector a leading light in the Nigerian economy, Buhari adds.
The information and communication technology sector emerged as the fastest growing sector in both the fourth quarter of 2020 and all of 2020, based on the report by the National Bureau of Statistics.

The Di sector’s double digit growth rate of 14.70% plays a major role in helping our country exit the recession due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
President Buhari adds that they identify and address the key challenges affecting the growth of the digital economy sector.
One of these challenges is high right of way costs and the destruction of critical national infrastructures.

“So we ask you to provide quality, affordable service to Nigerians.

Improve the quality of service and, given your large market in Nigeria, allow a downward price review of the cost of data and data services.
