    great, what about telecommunication?

  2. Great write-up! However, I should point out one error here. The satellite that was de-orbited 18 months after launch like you said was not NigeriaSat-1. It was NigComSat-1, our communications satellite. NigeriaSat-1 was our first satellite launched in September, 2003 and has since remained functional even till date. NigComSat-1 was our second satellite that was de-orbited or went “missing” as foolishly reported by our illiterate journalists. If our reporters had dug well enough, they would have found that, on average, 11 satellites go “missing” in orbit every year for variour reasons. What happened to our NigComSat-1 was entirely “normal” so to say. The commonest cause of this de-orbiting is a loss of communication with the satellite i.e when the satellite can no longer be reached. It’s like dialing a friend’s number and you hear that he’s “not available”. The usual cause is a failure in the power sub-system on board the satellite. And for those of us who continue to think nothing is being done about this lost satellite, they should know that the satellite had an insurance cover. So, the developers of the satellite have since begun rebuilding a replacement for it.
    Thank you.
