“This year, we are looking at penetration, which gives NAICOM an ample opportunity to deepen the market and sustain past achievements of the Commission in the industry. We are getting into the second phase of the Market Development and Restructuring Initiative (MDRI) to leverage on the achievements of the first phase. We are also leveraging on the Nigeria Governor’s Forum to reach every state of the Federation.”
