I am very happy about the progress made so far and want to thank every member of this team for the much that has been achieved. This is just the beginning and a pre-history, to be honest. The important thing is that we can Switch on Digital transmission and on the day of the launch, Abuja residents will be able to watch television in a new way because that will give us the opportunity to make a statement for Nigeria”.
