MTN Nigeria Sponsors ICAN Conference

April 12, 2021

MTN Nigeria recently disclosed that it sponsored the 50th Annual Accountants’ Conference that held from April 5th to 9th, 2021, at Abuja.

This year’s event with the theme: “The Fourth Industrial Revolution: Boom for the Accounting Profession and Panacea for the Pandemic,” hosted over 7,500 local and foreign delegates.

The hybrid event (physical and virtual attendance) was streamed to participants who were unable to attend the event physically due to limitations posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking at the conference, the Chief Transformation Officer, MTN Nigeria, Olubayo Adekanmbi said, “We at MTN Nigeria are so proud to be identified with this honorable profession and we are glad that we are helping to drive this conversation. This is our way of ensuring that in the wake of the pandemic, practising professionals remain up to date and add value to our nation in a changing world.”

Delivering his presentation on the importance of Internet of Things (IoT) in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Adekanmbi stated that, “With IoT, things that takes us years in our auditing, asset tracking and efficiency can be fast-tracked and accelerated. IoT allows you to reduce operational costs because you can track anything, everything, everywhere and you can serve your customers readily.

“For IoT to work, there are certain things that are critical because it is one device talking to another device. It means that you need an internet that is super powered and that is what broadband does effectively.

“MTN Nigeria has one of the fastest, accelerated broadband quality in Nigeria. A few months ago, through the honorable minister, we were able to test 5G in Nigeria. These are the enabling infrastructure we are already experimenting in Nigeria,” he added.
