In a recent announcement, Prince Dapo Abiodun, the Ogun State Governor inaugurated the first fibre optic factory in West Africa.
I must admit that it has not been an easy task to maneuver the processes of approval through our board of directors and our financial institutions led by Bank of Industry, which played a major role from conceptualisation of this project to its commissioning being witnessed today.George Onafowokan, the Chief Executive Officer, CTIL
We are, as a state government, elated to be part of this history. We are the first state to manufacture fibre optic cable in Nigeria. Let me say that what we are witnessing today is another example of numerous developments happening in different parts of our state, and these are no coincidences. They are all results of our deliberate, strategic and methodical approach to governance.
This is underscored by our vision, which remains to provide an enabling environment for performing private sector partnerships, which we believe is fundamental to the development of this state.
In our administration, we have absolute faith in the ability of the private sector to give impetus to the socio-economic development of our state and our country.
This factory is for the production of signal-transmitting cables for telecommunications for both commercial and industrial uses. This is indeed a commendable achievement for the board, staff and management of Coleman Technical Industries Limited.
The company and its products have become a household name in Nigeria. The expansion of your factory, from electrical wires and cables to the production of fibre optic cables is a confirmation of your confidence in the industrialisation drive of the Nigerian Federal Government.Prince Dapo Abiodun, Ogun State Governor
