Nigeria wants to refine its capabilities in the areas of space science, planetary exploration, ground stations, micro and mini satellite development. To achieve this, the country sought the experience of India with whom it signed a cooperation agreement on August 13.

The Federal Republic of Nigeria will benefit from the experience of the Republic of India in space. A cooperation agreement has been signed for this purpose between Francis Chizea, the Director General of the National Agency for Space Research and Development (NASRDA) of Nigeria, and K. Sivan, the President of the Indian Space Agency (ISRO), in the presence of Ogbonnaya Onu, the Nigerian Minister of Science and Technology, and V. Muraleedharan, the Indian Minister of State for Foreign Affairs.

Through this cooperation agreement materialized on August 13, 2020, Nigeria wants to take advantage of India’s knowledge in the fields of space science, planetary exploration, ground stations, the development of micro and mini satellites and research and development.

Nigeria wants to benefit from ISRO’s help in building the capacities of its engineers through an exchange of scientific know-how, exchanges between academic institutes and joint symposia or conferences.

Cooperation in remote sensing, communications and navigation forms an integral part of this agreement. Nigeria hopes to take advantage of this part of the cooperation to improve its skills in forestry, environment, agriculture, mining, watershed development and connectivity.
