In order to enlarge its scope in the West African region, an online service company based in Lagos, Fleet Technology Limited (FTL) Nigeria has opened its office in Ghana.

Managing Director, Fleet Technology Limited, Mr. Kunle Akinniran, said that his firm’s decision to open office in the West Legion, Ghana is part of the company’s strategic resolve toward providing innovative and accessible information and technology solution for the sub-region.

He also said that FTL at inception, promised to change the conduct of business online in Nigeria and now intends to change the face of the industry in Ghana.

He explained that Fleet Technologies, a leading provider of ICT solutions, pioneered online solutions since 2002, with its products on offer include online result checkers for the National Examinations Council (NECO), The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB).
