Emmanuel ONYEJEOSE commented on Undersea cable damage disrupts internet access in Nigeria
One would like to know why the SAT 3 undersea Cable was constructed in such a way that it was ffirst landed in small
Cotonou to be hooked on to Nigeria's giant consumer market?
Was it really economical that $ 9 billion Cable to land in Cotonou rather than hook direct to Lagos Metropolis where the market is. What is the robust technical rationale for the
decision.
In terms of maintenance leverage, the Ship repair cable based
in Cape Town time anchoring in Lagos as it now found out rather than going further West to Cotonou. Could the construction partners explain this and rationalise the arguement, please. If not, one would be tempted to believing that the Fracophone elements were used to undermine the
image of Nigeria as an economic giant in the ECOWAS Sub-Region of Africa.
