What the industry stakeholders are saying on WACC

Engr Lanre Ajayi

Immediate past National President

Association of Telecom Companies of Nigeria (ATCON)

“We are glad to have associated with the West Africa Convergence Conference since its inception. This has proven to be the place where decision makers across sectors converge whether within or outside the ECOWAS space. As industry stakeholders, our association deem this to be a meeting point for multi-sectors stakeholders where issues on Convergence and others can be addressed.”

Prof. Samuel Zalanga

Bethel University, St. Paul, Minnesota, USA

“I have found this event to be both enlightening and educative. This event showcases potential and a lot of achievements in the sector that are outside of public space. It is revealing to hear the figures from corporate entities that do not depend on government patronage. These are young entrepreneurs, very creative and able to leverage on technology to bring something new to the market; and this is happening in spite of the challenges in the country.”
