Galaxy Backbone Limited, Nigeria’s owned Digital Infrastructure and shared services platform for public and private organizations has explained the role it is playing in the digital transformation journey of Nigeria being championed by the Minister of Communications & Digital Economy, Prof. Isa Pantami.
The Managing Director/CEO of Galaxy Backbone, Prof. Muhammed Bello Abubakar, who highlighted the role being played by the company at the ICTEL Expo and Exhibition being organized by the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), noted that Galaxy backbone is proud of the investment and the work it has done in ensuring that the backbone and network infrastructure that is powering Nigeria’s Digital Economy is secure available and efficient.
Prof. Abubakar, who was represented at the conference by Mr. Dauda Oyeleye, Group Head Business Development at Galaxy Backbone, explained that the company’s world-class Tier III Datacentre and soon-to-be-launched Tier IV Datacentre for Cloud and Disaster Recovery purposes have been very impactful in the digital transformation journey of the government.
“With our digital infrastructure spread across Nigeria, we are playing an active role in the Digital Transformation journey of Nigeria being championed by the Honourable Minister of Communications & Digital Economy, Prof. Isa Pantami,” he said.
He believes that with ICT presently contributing almost 19 percent to Nigeria’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and the realities of Nigeria’s vibrant and energetic young population of innovative tech entrepreneurs spanning out from different parts of Lagos and across the country, Nigeria is poised for a consistently growing digital economy.
Thus, Galaxy Backbone as an organization is repositioned to advance the country’s growth and prosperity. “And what better way to do this than to support what the Lagos Chamber of Commerce is doing,” he said.
He added that Galaxy Backbone will keep working together toward creating effective and productive Digital Infrastructures that will power and propel Nigeria’s Digital Economy, assuring that in a short time, Nigeria would be listed as one of the most advanced digital economies operating out of Africa.
