Towards an Equitable Development of Telecommunications Services in Nigeria

COG Obah


Present and future equitable development of telecommunications services calls for an immediate development of an indigenous telecommunications technology capability in order to effectively and efficiently utilizes the services provided by the country's presently imported telecommunications systems while at the same time developing and manufacturing self-reliant telecommunications equipment suited to the peculiar needs of the country. This paper proposes the setting up of an autonomous communications agency for an effective control of the services development; the adoption of a graded telecommunications services delivery policy which emphasizes rural services development while at the same time allowing for the divergent levels of expectations, sophistication and thousand knowledge in the society; and an accelerated development of certain national special services.
