Date: 2024-03-15

The Nigeria Communications Satellite (NigComSat) Limited has begun VSAT installations to cover 579 of the 774 local government areas of the country. The project would operate via satellite coverage, leveraging the ku-band network asset of NigComSat-1R for the Federal Government.

The phase one of the project has been rolled out and is expected to cover 45 local government offices in eight states, including Borno, Cross River, Imo, Kogi, Kwara, Ogun, Sokoto, and Zamfara.

NigComSat’s Managing Director, Mrs. Nkechi Jane Egerton-Idehen, said the portable inverter system with solar panel used for the project would provide uninterrupted power supply.

The agency boss said using green energy solution has been delivered while members of the installation team were in the local government areas.

She said the installation began on March 5 in Kabba-Bunu Local Government Area of Kogi State.

A statement by the agency’s Head of Media, Stephen Kwanda, said Mrs. Egerton-Idehen explained that Kogi State was the first to benefit from the project, covering five local government areas of the state.

She listed the local government areas as Kabba/Bunu, Lokoja, Okehi, Bassa, and Okene. Others are: Adavi, Ajaokuta, Kogi, Mopamuro, and Dekina.

In Kwara State, Ilorin West, Offa, Irepodun, Ilorin South, and Kaiama local government areas would enjoy the gesture, while in Imo State, Ikeduru, Oru East Ihitte/Uboma, Orsu, and Oguta local government areas would be covered.
