Recognising Nigerian telecoms excellence

The prestigious annual Nigerian Telecoms Awards have again recognised the country’s top telecoms personalities and companies.

Showcasing excellence in Nigerian’s telecoms industry, the awards are regarded as Nigeria's most celebrated industrial awards.

The glittering 8th annual awards event was staged at the Incubator Event Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos. 

Speaking at the occasion, the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Nigerian Telecommunications Awards, Chief Alex Akinyele, said the awards are sustained by credibility.

He pledged that the Board of Trustees will continue to retain the credibility of the Awards among stakeholders.

Also speaking at the event, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, the governor of the State of Osun in South-west Nigeria, called on politicians to cease playing politics with the development of information communications technology (ICT).

He urged them to enable robust policies that will put the nation on the fast lane of the ICT super-highway to take centre stage.
