International civil society organisation Privacy International (PI) has called for the repeal of the Interception of Communication Bill, currently under consideration by lawmakers within Niger Republic.
The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ibrahim Pantami, had also led NCC to meet with Nigeria Governors' Forum (NGF) to deliberate on RoW issue, where Pantami reminded the governors of the agreement they reached with the National Executive Council in 2013, to slash RoW charges to a flat rate of N145 per linear metre, for national development and in the interest of the country.
Over recent years, the presence of online government services has become increasingly common. In 2018, Denmark was ranked first with a near-perfect E-Government Development Index (EGDI) rating of 0.9150. The EGDI assesses e-government development at a national level and is based on three components: online service index, telecommunication infrastructure index and the human capital index.
