Major telecom firm seeks to lay 160 km of fibre in Nigerian state Ekiti

Friday 10 July 2020 | 09:42 CET | News
A major telecommunications infrastructure provider has approached the Ekiti State government for approval to lay 160 kilometre of fibre across the state, BusinessDay reported. Akin Oyebode, special adviser for Investment, Trade and Innovation at Ekiti Government, said this follows the state's decision to reduce the charge for the right of way for fibre cables to NGN 145 per meter from NGN 4,500. The project means Ekiti will get over NGN 76 million in revenue if it approves the deal.
