The Nation (Nigeria) - February 23, 2012
Managing Director of the Nigerian Communications Satellite Limited (NIGCOMSAT), Tiamasaniyu Ahmed-Rufai, has advocated the use of the recently launched satellite, NigComSat-1R to achieve the ‘Electronic Park’ (e-Park) project and other Information and Communications Technology (ICT) initiatives of the Federal Government.
Ahmed-Rufai said the e- Park, a proposition of the Ministry of Communications Technology to serve as a skills acquisition and ICT training centre for youths, would save the country $5billion yearly, derivable from the penetration of indigenous software products and services.
