TECNO Mobile has established itself as one of Africa’s top guns in mobile shipments and indeed Nigeria’s leading OEM vendor but it’s not stopping there. Year over year the tech giant rolls out one custom product after another in partnership with sister companies; some of the notable products the stables of TECNO sister company Afmobil includes: Palmchat (a social networking platform for online dating, sports and news compatible on Windows, Android, iOS and WAP), Boom Player app (online audio and music videos download and streaming services) and Oraimo mobile accessories (eg: selfie sticks, SD cards, OTG cables etc)
The Ikeja streetlight project a TECNO Mobile CSR initiative which has been two years in making aims to light the Ikeja computer village and its environs in solar powered streetlights made by Hong Kong LED lighting company iFlux, a member of the TRANSSION HOLDINGS as is TECNO Mobile and INFINIX Nigeria. Lighting of the Ikeja mega electronics market will foster security and overall ambience of the market while revitalizing nightlife in the area which has been crippled in part, due to criminal activities that happen in dark alleys across the market streets.
Grand commissioning expected
On completion and hand over of the streetlights by the project contractor Arthur Energy Technology Ltd, the TECNO Mobile management in an official ceremony will unveil the streetlights to the host community. It would not be a strange sighting to spot dignitaries from local and state government at the unveiling occasion slated for January 21st, 2016 at the market.
