Speaking about the expansion, Hardy Pemhiwa, Group President & CEO of Cassava Technologies, said, “Expanding our operations here reiterates our interest in working with the government to achieve the objectives of Nigeria’s National Broadband Plan (2021 – 2025) and to transform Nigeria into a leading digital economy, a vision enshrined in the National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy (2020 – 2030). Through our expertise, we will work towards ensuring that businesses and individuals can add to the growing digital economy setting Nigeria on its path to transform into a tech powerhouse in Africa.”
Pemhiwa added that the company’s strategy is centred on its core objective to make affordable, quality broadband connectivity readily available to a mass market.
The company says Nigeria is ripe for investment, noting the acceleration of digital transformation and rising demand for cloud services.
CEO of Liquid Intelligent Technologies Nigeria, Wole Abu, adds, “Access to new and innovative technologies and high-speed connectivity has changed how organisations work across the continent. West Africa boasts the largest connectivity on the continent, connecting Nigeria locally and internationally. Liquid’s Intelligent Technology brings de-facto means of backhauling traffic within middle-mile networks, allowing the effective deployment of broadband networks in Nigeria and the rest of the region”.
Liquid believes its pan-African footprint allows it to operate its infrastructure to accelerate the availability of new intelligent technologies, including the high computing power of the cloud, artificial intelligence and cyber security services.
