We’ll Provide Enabling Environment for Businesses to Thrive - President Buhari Assures

The Nigerian Federal Government has reiterated its commitment to providing an enabling environment for businesses to succeed, as partnerships between the general public and private sectors remain the foremost viable means of bringing prosperity to the masses.

Mr Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, in a statement, said President Muhammadu Buhari gave the reassurance on Tuesday when he received the Chairman, MTN Group, Mr Mcebisi Jonas, at State House, Abuja.

Buhari  said: “I am pleased to hear of the progress you’re making in Nigeria, especially in supporting our digital inclusion programme

”Your proposed projects, such as the rural telephony project, will surely complement our economic diversification and financial inclusion programmes by connecting the producers based in rural areas to consumers located in our major towns and cities.”

He said the government was looking at ways to extend the level of security across critical national infrastructure, noting that it would guarantee seamless service delivery and also facilitate investments across the country.

According to him, Nigeria is Africa’s largest telecommunications market and MTN’s largest market.

“Our hope is for operators like MTN to continue to focus on delivering quality service at reasonable prices. If we put our minds together, such win-win positions are achievable,” he added.

The MTN Group Chairman said he was visiting along side top executives of the telecoms company to show appreciation to President Buhari, “because most of the problems we raised during your visit to South Africa are addressed, and there’s progress on the remaining ones.”

According to him, the Group has the utmost commitment to investing in Nigeria and would commit 1.6 billion dollars from its operations within the country to strengthen its network and systems.

“We are fully aligned with the strategic agenda of the govt , and are committed to strengthening the digital economy of the country,” he said.
