Multinational corporations and sustainable development goals: Examining Etisalat Telecommunication intervention in Nigeria’s basic education

Bello I., Othman M.F.

This paper explores the role of one multinational corporation towards education development in Nigeria. The findings suggest the multinational corporation, Etisalat Telecommunication, has made a positive contribution towards the Nigerian education sector, specifically through its “adopt a school” initiative. The authors of the paper conclude that the corporation made a positive contribution to infrastructure, enrolment rates, and the quality of teaching and learning. The paper provides insights about policies that can allow governments, international organisations, and educational institutions to use private funds from non-state actors to develop basic education systems both in Nigeria and across the globe.
