Aiming for Nigeria’s technology market, Orange Group meets with the NCC


Orange Group, an investor in the telecommunications industry and an operator of networks, said it wants to get into Africa’s most prominent tech market as it looks for ways to increase the number of people with broadband access.

The Orange Group is a multinational telecommunications company that operates in 18 nations and has a combined subscriber base of approximately 140 million people.

During a visit to the NCC’s office in Abuja, Orange Middle East & Africa, Team Lead Victoria Adefala stated, “we are here to make sure long-term s investments are stable. 

She stated that Orange Group wishes to support the Commission’s objective of expanding broadband penetration for a healthy digitized economy and harnessing local content development activities.

The group, which included Jean Chalhoub, Director of Regulatory Affairs for Orange Group in Africa, requested answers on several regulatory and policy problems that will enable the company to enter the country as quickly as possible.

TechEconomy had a statement made by Reuben Muoka, the Director of Public Affairs for the NCC. According to Adefala, Nigeria is absent from the portfolio of the Orange Group, which consists of a combined network with more than 140 million members in 18 countries in which it operates.

The immense market potentials made possible by the country’s enormous population, remarkable Gross Domestic Product number, and close to our operation in other African nations, and the commendable and welcoming business climate are significant driving forces behind our decision to expand our operations within the Nigerian telecommunication industry.

Professor Umar Garba Danbatta serves as the organization’s Chief Executive Officer and Executive Vice Chairman.

The National Communications Commission (NCC) assuaged the delegation’s concerns by assuring them of a robust policy and regulatory environment that ensures quality and has the complete backing of the Federal Government, as is evident from the provisions of such instruments, such as Executive Order 001, which promotes transparency and efficiency in business; the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council and the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan of the Federal Government. 

He stated that the Commission has also taken several additional regulatory initiatives to enhance the operational environment. a good example of this is the continuing collaboration with the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) to lower RoW rates on telecom infrastructure deployments .MoUs (Memorandums of Understanding) have been signed with different government and institutional players around the country; norms and regulations have been devised to support the collocation of infrastructure.
