The Managing Director, NIGCOMSAT Ltd, Dr. Abimbola Alale, who on behalf of the Board, Management and Staff, expressed joy and satisfaction on the choice of the Hon. Minister said, ‘this was due to his diligent, hard work, and passion in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Industry’.
According to Dr. Alale, there couldn’t have been any better choice to lead the Forum Session recognizing the tremendous impact of Pantami’s leadership in the ICT industry in the country.
‘Since the Hon Minister’s assumption as the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, the focus and direction of the industry on the Nigeria economy has changed to a more fruitful, impactful and growth’, said Dr. Alale.
