Shekarau’s loyalists affirm support to Kwankwaso’s NNPP in Kano

The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Professor Ali Isa Pantami, has said the Regional Data Centre established by the  federal government in Kano will enhance revenue generation as well as provide effective and  qualitative ICT services to both private and public institutions.

ALL IN ONE reports that Pantami made the disclosure to journalists when he paid an inspection visit  to the centre on Saturday.

He said the visit was to ensure   that the centre is satisfactory prior to the Federal Government official commissioning.

“As you all know, this project is being implemented by Galaxy Backbone Limited, which is the initiative of the federal government under President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that we provide qualitative ICT services to our citizens,” he said.

He pointed  out that data centre storage capacity is being implemented in phases, noting that the first phase is 0.7 petabite, and according to him, there is scope when the need for expansion arises.

“We built it base on the demand of our citizens and customers. If you build a very big one without demand, sustainability will be challenge. When our Customers increase we will equally increase the capacity without any delay,” the minister said.

The previous administration had executed and commissioned  National Information and Communication Technology Backbone (NICTIB -1), which covers most of of the state in the southern part of the country.

Also speaking, Professor Muhammad Bello Abubakar, MD/ CEO Galaxy Backbone Limited, said the both public and private Institutions will benefit from the data centre in terms  of  ICT services such as nationalising email platforms  services, data services among other ICT services for citizens.
