ThisDay carries news that the Nigerian government is set to slash the price of internet-enabled mobile phones. An excerpt from the news item:
The Federal Government has assured Nigerians that it would begin the process of reducing the cost of Internet-enabled mobile phones, so as to enable more Nigerians have access to the internet.
The article does not say how exactly this will be done, but the last time I checked, government was not in the business of importing and selling mobile phones. Perhaps import tax waivers? Tax-free incentives for manufacturing here in the country? We wait with keen interest.
