President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the controversy generated by Nigeria’s adoption of 5G network.

He made the remark in his Independence Day speech.

The President also explained why the federal government made National Identification Number (NIN) compulsory.

He said the efforts to ensure all Nigerians have a NIN as well as our planned roll-out of the fifth genedation technology “will ensure we stay in line with the global innovation curve as a Nation”.

Buhari told citizens that as the nation embraces digital economy, the authorities are fully aware of the prospects and the perils.

The President said policies have been developed to enable Nigerians take advantage of the prospects and avoid the dangers of digital technologies.

On the transport sector, he confirmed that over 13,000 kilometres of roads and bridges are under construction across the country and that a fair percentage have been completed.

He said as roads are being fixed, the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration is extending and upgrading Nigeria’s railway network with the opening of the Warri-Itakpe standard gauge rail line.

Buhari said to increase capacity, more locomotives, coaches and wagons have been added, in addition to the establishment of a Wagon Assembly in Kajola, Ogun State.

The President admitted the sea port remain problematic as effect of various interventions to reduce the gridlocks and inefficiencies have been slower than expected.

He assured that implementation of the Electronic Call-Up System, plus conversion of the Lillypond Container Terminal to a Vehicle Transit Area will further enhance the ease of cargo evacuation.

“Our prioritisation of developing Nigeria’s Digital Economy has positively impacted the contribution of the ICT sector to our GDP”, the Nigerian leader added.
