30 million Nigerians have never seen a mobile phone – ATCON President, Teniola by reicherMan: 12:58am On May 11
The President of the Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria, ATCON, Mr Olusola Teniola revealed 30 millions Nigerians in some remote communities have never seen a mobile phone.

Mr Olusola Teniola while discussing some of major challenges and the potential of the telecoms industry. In interview with TOBI AWORINDE of Punch.

When he was asked if he believe that there are some remote communities in Nigeria that are still without mobile networks. He said:

"That is correct. There are 102 market gaps that we have identified through research, which represents 20 to 30 million Nigerians, who have never made a voice call because they have never seen a mobile phone in their lives, let alone get onto the Internet. They are in darkness."

According to report by United Nation Population Fund (UNFPA), Nigeria has 201 million in population.

It's a lie.

Except you are talking of those who dwell in the mountains of Adamawa.

But even those guys are nothing above 1 million in population.

Flawed statistics.

Tell you are serious, well I guess you have a particular area on mind.

Yeah, that reminds me, I was about to show you guys that Instagram regulates again!!

The social media platform, Instagram blocked hashtags on hoax.

Who knows, your favorite hashtags might be the next in line.

Lol, just use genuine hashtags!

So some nairaland mods & members usually observe tarry nights on this forum.

But I doubt this news. If the news read: 30 million Nigerians don't have light to charge their mobile phones or 30 million Nigerians cannot afford chinco phones.

Oga, it's a lie. He can't just bring out statistics from nowhere and shove it into a face like that.
Most villages have residents or relatives of residents who use phones and can show them what phones look like.
The lie would be quite believable if he had said 30 million Nigerians have never "used" phones.

Sure. There are a few uncontacted/crude people in the north. However, they can never be close to that number. In most places where those types of people have ever been found, they're usually less than 10,000 people. You can't have hundreds of thousands of uncontacted people because they lack good healthcare and their quality of life is usually low. In fact, their number often decreases because many of them die from diseases without being replaced.
