Abstract:

Nigeria is yet to meet one of its telecommunications market liberalization goals -- developing a manufacturing base -- because some of the key enabling strategies have been absent. This essay discusses several issues related to Nigeria’s market liberalization goals by reviewing industry history, analyzing the reform decrees and key reform activities. In the end, it discusses what needs to be done in order to meet all the stated goals.
In 1992, Nigeria had issued a Decree to liberalize its telecommunications market that had long been under the control of government monopoly. To be sure, the Nigerian government, then under military dictatorship, had sought to hold firmly to government-control of telecommunications despite pressures, both internally and externally, for liberalization. It changed its policies only when it was compelled to believe that liberalization would be the key to the following: quickening telecommunications development, bringing in a massive infusion of cash to government coffers, and the beginning of the development of a telecommunications manufacturing base. There were several key liberalization strategies to achieving those goals including attracting technically capable market entrants, ensuring an enabling competitive and stable marketplace, and convincing investors about the market’s profitability.
