MTN marks 20th anniversary, thanks Nigerians

Here’s why MTN Nigeria’s service went down

MTN Nigeria has extended its gratitude towards Nigerians as the telecoms and ICT company celebrates its 20th anniversary.

The company began its operation in Nigeria in 2001 and has grown to become the market leader in the telecommunications sector, providing call, data, and mobile money services to Nigerians.

As part of its expression of gratitude towards Nigerians for their support over the years, MTN would be commissioning an ultra-modern head office in Nigeria to be powered by renewable energy. This is also a testament to its desire to continue to plant its roots in the country.

Karl Toriola, chief executive officer of MTN Nigeria, said the building would serve as a central hub for creativity and innovation.

“In line with our desire to plant deeper and more permanent roots in Nigeria, we have also initiated plans to commission a purpose-built, state of the art MTN Head Office, designed to act as a central hub for our network, a catalyst for creativity and innovation, and a showcase for the flexible working structures that are driving efficiency gains in this new normal working environment,” Toriola said.

According to him, “Aligned with our wider commitment to environmental sustainability, it will meet the highest global environmental standards, demonstrating the role of green technology in our future.”

The company said it owes its success to the immense support of Nigerians over the years.

“In 20 years, we have been able to reach impressive heights thanks to the support of Nigerians. This has been our motivation for doing more, and we will continue to put Nigerians first,” Toriola said.

The company reiterated its plans to secure 90percent broadband population coverage by 2025.
