“Nigerians are winners, and the world is coming to Nigeria – from South Africa, Europe, Asia, everywhere, and I’m very glad I can partake in it,” he said.
He added that Nigeria’s tech sector is becoming more lucrative than Kenya and the rising rate of competition will spark innovation.
“Competition will bring innovation and the consumer will be the winner at the end,” he said.
To be relevant in evolving markets such as Nigeria’s, he advised mobile experts to challenge old beliefs.
“Let go of everything you know, challenge old beliefs, don’t take anything for granted and put your best people on mobile,” he said.
