The Mobile Telephone Network( MTN) has said it would be collaborating with Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet), in disseminating weather and climate information to farmers and other users across the country.

The two organizations are collaborating on a whole range of areas including commercializing weather data, improving accuracy of weather and climate forecasts, and application of artificial intelligence (Ai) in weather and climate intelligence.

According to Okigbo, “As the leading provider of communications services in Nigeria, with over 77 million people on our network, we are committed to supporting national initiatives that enhance the quality of life of Nigerians. Therefore, we are open to supporting NiMet’s partnership with Tomorrow.io to make this service available to farmers across Nigeria.
We appreciate the opportunity to work together to improve the nation’s food security and anticipate a fruitful working relationship”.

On his part, the Director-General and Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet), Professor Charles Anosike said; “NiMet is the federal government of Nigeria agency responsible for observing, collating, collecting, processing and disseminating all meteorological data and information.

“The weather and climate data that we generate are useful planning tools for all Nigerians, farmers, and other sectoral operators in aviation, marine, oil and gas, construction, academia, etc.

“We are delighted to be partnering with MTN Nigeria to support the critical task of disseminating weather and climate information to farmers to boost food security which is a key component of the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu”.
