Abstract:Nigeria has not given antitrust law and its authority a priority and emphasis while it engages in the policy of liberalization, privatization, and deregulation. The role of antitrust law and authority is relevant especially in her telecommunication sector because of the increasing growth and competition in the industry. When discussing the efficiency of utilities such as telecommunication, the macro-discursive agenda should shift from mere policy of liberalization and achieving competition towards preventing anti-competitive conducts. The debate on liberalization and the introduction of mobile telephony in Nigeria has been informative in so far as it has struck at the core of constitutional provisions guaranteeing citizens' access to communicative channels. However, I advance the thesis that liberalization/privatization of the telecommunication sector in Nigeria should not distract our attention from considering the relevant protectionist laws and institutions that will ensure that the full benefits of liberalization are reaped. This involves the establishment of antitrust law and authority that will assist the regulatory body in the detection, prevention and prosecution of market abuses by operators. This law together with established its institution will ensure that the telecommunication sector does not gravitate towards extremes of blatant anti-competitive practices by operators, on the one hand, or infringements of consumers' rights on the other. The study concludes by advocating the adoption of "a complementarity model" in which an antitrust law and its authority will play a regulatory role in the regulation of competition against the backdrop of liberalization of the telecommunication sector in Nigeria.
