The President said the Federal Government will take full use of the prospects that 5G brings for the economy, security, and well-being of the country as he launched the National Policy on 5G for Nigeria’s Digital Economy.

President Buhari also assuaged concerns about 5G’s health safety, stating that such concerns have been “effectively addressed” in crafting a policy that is appropriate for Nigeria.

The President emphasised that 5G technologies may benefit practically every sector of the economy, including increased connection, better healthcare, support for education while developing smart cities, and improving agriculture, among other benefits.

It will also support security institutions with real time communication. 5G technology is significantly faster than earlier digital technologies and it provides near real-time communication. This can play a key role in boosting our efforts towards enhancing security across the nation,” he said.

Mr President added that;

It will enable our security institutions to effectively deploy robotics, autonomous vehicles, augmented and virtual reality to address any security challenges that we face.”

The President said that the National 5G Policy contains a deployment plan to ensure that the technologies are available in major cities across the country.

He went on to say that the policy aims to make 5G a major driver of the economy, a catalyst for smart cities in the country, and a platform for the creation of jobs that support the digital economy, which is in line with the administration’s commitment to supporting the digital economy as an enabler for the diversification of our national economy.5G Technology: Buhari launches National Policy
