MTN Foundation, the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm of MTN Nigeria has expressed concerns over the nation’s insecurity even as it argued that the concern of security should not be left in the hands of government alone.
Former minister of Health and a director in the Foundation, Prince Julius Adelusi-Adeluyi stated this in Ado-Ekiti during the presentation of five fully-equipped and branded security patrol vehicles to the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose.

Professor Tim Unwin, Secretary-General of the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO) has argued that access to the Internet should feature more prominently in the post-2015 sustainable development goals.
Speaking at his inaugural address to the Commonwealth Broadband Forum 2014 held recently in Nairobi, Professor Unwin emphasized the importance of broadband and how we should all be working to ensure that the poorest and most marginalised groups are not excluded and are able to grasp the opportunities provided by new technologies.
