SWAP: Lean operator model critical to success in Nigeria
Why Nigeria’s operators should consider selling their towers
Nigeria: declining ARPU, unreliable grid and fuel theft problems contributing to sky-high opex, yet still one of the most coveted telecoms markets in Africa. Nigeria is also the birthplace of the African tower industry. In order to understand the market and diagnose the potential for tower transactions in Nigeria, TowerXchange spoke to Fazal Hussain, veteran of Helios Towers Nigeria, Eltek and now CEO of SWAP International.
TowerXchange: Great to meet you again Faz. Please tell us about your new role at SWAP.
Fazal Hussain, Group CEO, SWAP International:
One of my key responsibilities is to make SWAP a pan-African player in the tower business.
