Mark urges internet use for economic devt

Senate President, David Mark, has urged Nigerians to use the internet services available in the country to grow the country’s economy.

Mark spoke at the inauguration of a new internet provider, Spectranet Limited at the National Assembly, Abuja.

Represented at the event by his Chief of Staff, Senator Anthony Manzo, he commended the new internet providers for bringing to the country internet services that could be comparable to the one provided anywhere in the world.

Mark insisted that internet services should be used wisely especially for the development and growth of the country’s economy.

He said: “Let us use the internet wisely. The internet can also be tools for destruction. So use we should use the internet for knowledge, education and growth of our country. Don’t use it to search for some equipment used in making bombs.”

Mark who said that there is no doubt that the fasted way of moving data is through wireless added that the internet has made the world a small village and information available to the poor and rich.

He said one of the successes of the country’s democratic experiment is liberalisation of the economy, especially internet connection, adding that one advantage the new provider has is that their services are not time bound.

“It is a major plus and I hope they will reduce their price with time. In the West, internet is very cheap because their subscriber base is very cheap,” he said.

Mark who said government alone cannot employ everybody noted that the country would reap from job creation from the new providers.

He said: “The support government gives to companies like yours is what keeps the economy going because it creates jobs while the country benefits from the tax you pay. I am happy to associate with your company and I hope it will grow from strength to strength.”

The Chief Operating Officer of Spectranet Mr. Atul Ojha said the technology of his company is equivalent to the best of the technology anywhere in the world.
