Abstract

Existing communication infrastructure in the African hinterlands is grossly inadequate, thus there is a need to develop national, regional and sub-regional carrier of carriers and digital links with cross-border inter-connectivity. Although, the continent has adequate capacity on submarine fibre optic cables along the shores of the African coastline, it lacks an adequate infrastructure within African countries including cross-border connectivity. The demand projection suggests that there is a need for a robust passive infrastructure built in and around Africa to address the large un-met demand for information and communication services. This paper examines NigComSat Ltd (a government company) strategic plan for ICT development in Nigeria as a vehicle to drive the National ICT revolution in pursuit of: national e-readiness, ICT self-reliance and the skills acquisition required for engineering and technology domestication to enable the socio-economic development of Nigeria.
