07 June 2023

Nigeria’s minister of communications and digital economy Isa Ali Pantami, and his Gambian counterpart Ousman Bah, have signed a memorandum of understanding to strengthen their cooperation in the field of digital economy.

Collaboration will include broadband development, spectrum management, research, capacity building, cybersecurity, internet governance, infrastructure, legal frameworks, and e-government.

The signing of this MoU comes about seven months after the Gambian government sought the support and collaboration of the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) to accelerate the development of the telecommunications sector. Bah then said that Nigeria had achieved the objectives of digitising its economy in view of the statistics of the sector.
