The federal government of Nigeria has contracted Nokia Solutions and Networks Nigeria to train young Nigerians on latest 4G/ 5G radio and transmission technologies.

While signing an MoU on the project with Nokia earlier in the week,  Minister of Communications, Innovation and Digital Economy, Bosun Tijanni and the Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Executive of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Aminu Maida stressed that the programme was designed to advance Nigeria’s Vision on Digital Capacity.

Nokia is billed to deliver the task using NCC’s Digital Parks.
