The Chief Executive Officer of Medallion Communications Limited, Mr. Ikechukwu Nnamani, has indicated interest to contest for the post of ATCON First Vice President in the next election.

He has held various positions on the board of the National Executive Council of the Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria (ATCON).

Having been part of the success story of ATCON in the last 25 years of existence, Nnamani said he would want to be voted for in order to add his voice to the continued protection of the investment that has already been made in the industry.

The Association has made many strategic interventions to grow and make the telecom industry what it is today and what it would be in the future. The Associations needs an experienced and visionary people to take it to the next level and I strongly believe I have all it takes to migrate ATCON to the next height, Nnamani said, while soliciting the votes of members in the forth coming ATCON election.

I will ensure that all states government buy into the drive to accelerate the broadband penetration in their respective states. You will agree with me that right of way is a big issue which has slowed down the broadband saturation in Nigeria, there shall be an intentional attempt in collaboration with all relevant agencies to remove it, Nnamani assured members if voted into power.

As you know that the Association has evolved and in order to remain a voice to be reckoned with we need to review our membership classification and new source of income would be identified and explored to increase the financial capability of the Association. ATCON, under the next Administration of which I plan to be the 1st Vice President would be stronger more prominent both in Nigeria and in the global world, Nnamani said.
