President Ahmed Tinubu’s one year scorecard vis-à-vis ICT sector growth

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not give a broadcast to the nation on Wednesday to celebrate his first anniversary as the leader of Nigeria.

Bayo Onanuga, special adviser to the president on communications and strategy, said in a statement that instead, the president will address a joint session of the National Assembly, which has lined up a programme to mark the nation’s 25 years of democratic journey.

Tinubu’s speech will dwell on the achievements of his administration and Nigeria’s democracy since the military ceded power in 1999.
