Nigerian Internet Business Opportunities. An #ICT4D Skype Chat.

The following blog post is culled from and involves me.

Nigeria is the Giant of Africa, with 1/8 of its population and all the possibilities and problems that come with such size and diversity. It also should be the ICT leader for Africa.

Nigeria has the more mobile phone subscribers, at 68 million, than Egypt or South Africa. And more Internet users, 11 million, than South Africa, and almost as many as Egypt. But it doesn’t have the buzz of either. In fact, it doesn’t even have the buzz of Ghana or Kenya, which combined still do not compare with Nigeria’s size. Why?

Explore the issues behind Nigeria’s silence and the opportunities that do remain, at the next ICT4D Skype Chat:

  1. I really enjoyed this write up on online business and payment.

    Several e-mail are sent into my mail box daily promoting one product or service or the other but i always find out that i always have problem at the point of trying to pay online for this product or services since click bank and pay pal does not do business with Nigerians or should i say those who resides in Nigeria.
