Danbatta, Emeka Mba to speak at Nigeria Telecom Impact CEO Forum 2015

The Executive Vice Chairman (EVC), Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Prof Umar Danbatta, Director General, National Broadcasting Commission, Emeka Mba, are expected to address the Nigeria Telecom Impact CEO Forum 2015, ITRealms reports.  

Other speakers at the event include CEO of Galaxy Backbone, Yusuf Kazaure and his counterparts from MTN, Michael Ipoki; Airtel, Segun Ogunsanya; Etisalat, Matthew Wilsher; MainOne, Funke Opeke among other CEOs. 

ITRealms gathered that top Nigerian CEOs from diverse sectors of the economy will be gathering on October 30 at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers, Lagos, to deliberate on how the influence of telecommunications could contribute 25 per cent to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Themed “How Telecoms Can Contribute 25 per cent to the GDP by 2025”, the Impact CEO Forum would focus on the recently rebased GDP figures, which revealed that Nigeria’s telecommunications sector is “a star performer in the economy”.

Organiser of the event, ICT Watch Network, Mr. Tayo Adewusi, said as more sectors of the Nigerian economy appreciate the importance of telecommunications in improving their productivity and efficiency, there is a need to have an open platform where “C-level executives of various sectors will meet the telecommunication companies to discuss current trends and make realizable projections into the future”.

Adewusi said Impact CEO Forum is envisioned as the foremost influential meeting of top-level executives who will assess the impression of telecom on their businesses. As such, he informed, the event has attracted about 50 CEOs and 300 participants from all sectors of the economy from telecoms, agriculture, banking, entertainment, broadcasting and manufacturing, ITRealms learnt.

Other areas the influence of telecoms is heavily being felt is lottery and pooling, education, law, e-commerce, emergency management, tourism, customs and immigration. Others are travel and logistics, capital market, maritime, sports and government.
