Leading
telecommunication service provider in Nigeria, Airtel Networks Limited,
has praised Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, for the state’s
knowledge-driven reforms and prioritisation of innovative technologies
in engendering sustainable development in the state.

Regional
Operations Director, South, Airtel Nigeria, Oladapo Dosunmu, who said
this during a courtesy visit to the Government House, in Benin City,
noted: “I acknowledge the infrastructure development and milestone
achievements in the state under your dynamic leadership. Coming into the
city, one can see the footprint of your good work. I urge you to
continue with the excellent job, in order to sustain the love and
respect of your people and continuous development of Edo State.”

He
said the service provider is seeking a long-term strategic partnership
with Edo State Government in the area of Information Communication
Technology (ICT) development and enabling environment which will provide
room for expansion of the company’s operations in the state.

Governor
Obaseki expressed appreciation to the company for investing in the
state, stressing that his administration is focused on supporting
businesses to thrive and enable them contribute to the state’s
socio-economic development.

He
said in collaboration with Facebook, the state government has laid
about 400km fibre optic cables around Benin City, adding, “We believe
very soon Benin City, Edo State, will be the city with the best internet
connectivity in the country. As a government, we are creating
mini-business hubs like the one we are putting up along Sapele Road-axis
where we are building the Edo Production Center. We will also put up a
mini-hub for offices and businesses as we plan to have 24/7
electricity.”

“We
are building an Enterprise Park in Edo, which will be fitted with
electricity and fibre-optic internet connection. Construction will
commence before the end of the year. We are about to be granted an
export processing zone license for the park,” he added.
