MAFAB ROLLS OUT 5G SERVICES IN LAGOS, FIVE OTHER STATES

MAFAB Communications Limited, on tuesday, unveiled its new logo and rolled out the Fifth Generation (5G) Technology network services in six states.. Mafab won the bid for the 5G Spectrum of 3.5GHz licence in December 2021 and paid over $273.6 million to the Federal Government through the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC). The roll out of its services for Nigerians would be in Lagos, Kano, Kaduna, Rivers, and Enugu states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). The company also unveiled a brand-new logo at an event attended by Prof Pantami, the Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC, Prof Umar Danbatta and the Director-General of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi. Speaking at the launch which took at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, the Chairman of Mafab, Dr Mushabu Bashir, said: “The rollout of Mafab 5G network is the beginning of immense opportunities for the country as it represents Nigeria’s capabilities and infinite possibilities.” Bashir said with the launch, there is prospect of increased job opportunities as a consequence of the value-chain benefits the technology would generate, describing Mafab acquisition of the license for the 5G spectrum as a long walk to success. Pantami explained why the roll out of 5G technology services was delayed, saying the government had to clear misconceptions about health issues raised during the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic by engaging the stakeholders. Pantami, who praised Mafab for entering the industry within a short period to compete with big players, said Digital Technology should be leveraged by the Armed Forces to address security challenges. He explained that digital technology has become the key enabler of advanced economy, stressing that it was the implementation of the digital economic policy of the present administration that facilitated increase in Federal Government revenue in the ICT sector from N51 billion to N408 billion within three years of his appointment.
