The government of Nigeria is desirous of a win-win relationship with the leading Information and Communication Technology (ICT) company in Africa and the Middle East, MTN, as the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari seeks ways to grow the country’s economy.

Speaking during a recent visit of officials of the MTN Group and MTN Nigeria to the presidential villa, Mr Buhari said, “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.”
