Shittu leads Nigeria delegation to China, as NIGCOMSAT wins Belarus heart

The Minister of Communications, Barrister Adebayo Shittu, Thursday led the Nigerian delegations to attend international conference on space technology in Belarus, China, even as Nigerian Communication Satellite (NIGCOMSAT) would use the opportunity to consummate its deal with Belarus Sat, reports ITRealms.
The delegation is also expected to work on improving the nation's cyber space and the telecommunications sector. 

Confirming this, the Special Assistant on Media to Communications Minister, Mr. Victor Oluwadamilare, said this coincided with the award of a Carrier Spectrum Management (CSM) contract to one of the agencies in the Ministry, NIGCOMSAT by the Republic of Belarus. 

Aside from attending the conference, Barrister Shittu would also pay a working visit to the town of Fxichang, where he is expected to meet with leading telecommunications' players in China.

The Minister is equally scheduled to attend the launch of Belitersat1 satellite in the country which would afford him the opportunity to sell Nigeria's vast potentials in the sector to investors at the forum.

Oluwadamilare further confirmed to ITRealms that Shittu would return to Beijing on Saturday, where he is expected to parley with other stakeholders in the telecommunications industry. 

Barrister Shittu had his assumption of office expressed his determination in making the telecommunications sector a cash cow for the nation's economy in view of its untapped potentials.

Meanwhile, NIGCOMSAT has become the first company in the African continent to tender and won the bid to provide a Carrier Spectrum Management (CSM) and In- Orbit Test (IoT) services for Belintersat-1 which belongs to the Republic of Belarus. 

The award is expected to boost the company's drive to extend its products and services, thus making it a leading company in the satellite business the world over.
