MTN Group to Invest $215 Million in Benin’s Digital Infrastructure Over Next Three Years

MTN Group commits to enhancing digital progress in Benin, investing in infrastructure and state-of-the-art office.

Dedicated to leading digital solutions for Africa’s progress, MTN Group committed to investing US$215 million in infrastructure in Benin over the next three years and building a state-of-the-art office for subsidiary MTN Benin.

These pledges were made during an MTN Group leadership visit to Cotonou, the highlight of which was a meeting with His Excellency President Patrice Talon attended by MTN Group President and CEO Ralph Mupita, MTN Benin Chairman Amadou Raimi, Senior Vice President for Markets Ebenezer Asante, MTN Benin CEO Uche Ofodile and MTN Group Chief Sustainability and Corporate Affairs Officer Nompilo Morafo.

MTN works to be a force for good in our markets, giving Africans hope, dignity and opportunity. We are grateful for the warm reception received in Benin, where we have trialled 5G services and see opportunities to progress this.

We are committed to the development and upskilling of the Beninese youth and have made clear our desire to partner with the government and other stakeholders in this regard.

Ralph Mupita, President and CEO, MTN Group

The President thanked members of the MTN delegation for their commitment and looked forward to future collaboration as MTN Benin – with some eight million subscribers – marks a quarter of a century of operations.
