This book carefully dissects the policies, rules, regulations and industry best practices which makes the Nigerian telecommunications industry the success story that it is today, despite numerous challenges. It mirrors the herculean efforts and the trade-offs that policy makers, regulators, operators and even consumers made to ensure that telecommunications remain the infrastructure of all infrastructures.
We, the Association of Licensed Telecommunications Operators of Nigeria, see this book as not just an academic work; but, also a very valuable practitioners’ handbook. It therefore comes highly recommended

It is laudable that industry practitioners have written a comprehensive and one-stop material on Nigerian Telecommunications Law and Regulation.
This book would be a very good reference material for regulators, investors, scholars and industry practitioners

A book that sets out with such clarity (and) in the greatest detail the history, current status and how to navigate the policies and regulation of the Nigerian telecommunications sector in the real world could not have come at a better time.
As an industry practitioner, I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the Book and commend it very strongly for everyone with an interest in the Industry. It also provides invaluable insight for other countries in Sub Saharan Africa to learn from the Nigeria experience.
The co-authors have done an excellent job and I did not expect less having worked with the two of them extensively in the course of my career in the Sector. This is the ‘bible’ every practitioner and stakeholder must have within arm’s reach.

Quasim and Rotimi have challenged the industry by putting together an encyclopaedia behind the growth of the Telecommunications industry from the perspective of Legal, Regulatory, Economic, Social and Technological impacts. (The book) paints a landscape of evolutionary trends that defines the current status quo and provides pointers to where the impending Digital Economy may take the industry to in form of shape and size.
I have the humble honour of thanking them for the diligent effort put into creating this tome and it is my wish that it serves as a mandatory reference point to all practitioners, academics and policy makers committed to shaping this dynamic space.

I have had the pleasure of reviewing some Chapters of “Telecommunications Law and Regulations in Nigeria”. The book is both an eye-opener and reminder that as a country, we have crossed several milestones and thresholds in the development of communications and digital technology.
I am very grateful that Quasim and Rotimi have taken up the task of documenting the journey so far and bringing a refreshing perspective to developing academic and intellectual capacity, while pushing the boundaries for further exploration of the exciting future of the law as it relates to telecommunications and its regulation in Nigeria

An impressive work. The book significantly enriches academic and practitioner literature on telecommunications law and regulation in Nigeria. Its coverage is broad and the topics are well-researched. A long overdue addition to the body of knowledge on the subject
