MTN marks 20th anniversary



Nigeria’s largest mobile telecommunications operator, MTN Nigeria Communications Plc has hit 20 years of operation in the country’s telecommunications market.

MTN Nigeria launched its services on August 8, 2001. Since its launch, MTN has steadily deployed its unmatched services across Nigeria, connecting approximately 69 million people in communities across the country with each other and the world.

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.

He said, “We are pleased to announce that our Board of Directors has approved our participation in the Road Infrastructure Tax Credit (RITC) Scheme. This is in response to the Government’s drive towards public-private partnerships in the rehabilitation of critical road infrastructure in Nigeria. We intend to participate in the restoration and refurbishment of the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway.”

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.

MTN Nigeria is currently present in 223 cities and towns, more than 10,000 villages and communities and a growing number of highways across the country, spanning the 36 states of Nigeria and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
