I disagree with this one, There is different between never seen and could not afford. 98% of Nigerians have seen a mobile phone but 30 million can not afford to buy 2K china phone is another ball Game entirely.

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.

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.
Even that would be a silly lie!
30 million! Ha!!
So many countries don't even have that population!
Infact no state has that population in Nigeria!!!

Maybe,but how many are they,

It's conceivable that more than 30Million Nigerians do not have a mobile phone but saying they have never seen a phone in 18 years of GSM iin Nigeria s far fetched..

una go just de una house de shout it's a lie its a lie, how many places una dn visit. It's possible, though the number could be exaggerated.
I always tell people 'that you haven't seen doesn't mean it doesn't exist'
It's a big fat lie,

Even for the most interior of villages,

Someone among them must have one and we are talking about seeing it,

Not owning it..

Yeah,

Saying 60M are poor must be exaggerated..

The number of poor should be closer to 120M? undecided

Just 30m when our population is almost 200m. Their stats ain't flawed it's 0
A big fat lie..

Not owning a phone is one thing,

Never seen one in 18 years of GSM is another..
