Nigeria Communications Satellite (NIGCOMSAT) Limited is collaborating with Hydropolis Free Trade Zone, Kainji, Niger State, North-Central Nigeria, in order to explore areas of upping their mutual business interests in game-changing fashion.
The NIGCOMSAT Limited management had hosted a delegation from the Hydropolis Free Trade Zone at its headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
A statement signed by the General Manager, Corporate Affairs and Special Projects of NIGCOMSAT Limited, Dr. Adamu Idris, on Sunday in Abuja disclosed that the management of Hydropolis Free Trade Zone, a subsidiary of Mainstream Energy Solutions, planned to generate a world-class business hub in the country.
“The Free Trade Zone sits on more than 2000 hectares of land, located at Amfani, in New Bussa Local Government Area of Niger, after the famous Kainji Dam.
” It is expected to accommodate a smart city, cargo airport, car race (Formula 1) racetrack, etc.,” Idris stated.
He explained that the proposed collaboration with NIGCOMSAT was for the deployment of full broadband services for the proposed smart city.
He quoted the NIGCOMSAT Limited, Managing Director, Mr. Tukur Lawal, as having expressed its readiness to provide the necessary services needed for the city.
Lawal reportedly described the gesture as the “game changer” for NIGCOMSAT Limited.
Lawal said that, with such massive project, NIGCOMSAT doors were opened for discussions on areas of mutual benefits.
Earlier, the Managing Director of the Hydropolis Free Trade Zone, Dr. Abdulmalik Ndagi, had said that the visit was to seek collaborations for internet broadband services for the smart city.
“NIGCOMSAT Limited has requested for a formal proposal which Hydropolis agreed to provide before setting a technical committee to discuss the takeoff of business transaction.
