IHS Nigeria Brief Overview

We're committed to developing our services in Nigeria and to continue meeting the growing demand for mobile.

IHS Towers began in Nigeria in 2001, and Nigeria remains our largest market. The company started as a provider of site build services for mobile network operators in Nigeria, but has gone on to develop deep expertise in all aspects of telecom towers. We operate from our head office in Lagos but have regional offices in Abuja, Ibadan, Enugu, Asaba, Kano and Port Harcourt.

We also operate two datacenters – in Lagos and Abuja – enabling us to support our Network Operating Centers (NOCs) with a high-quality IT infrastructure, robust security and a reliable network.

Key CSR Projects

In 2018, IHS Nigeria implemented a range of initiatives across the Group’s four CSR pillars which include Ethics, People, Environment and Education.  

Two educational initiatives, namely School on Wheels and IHS Project Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), were launched to support the talent pipeline for high-growth STEM sectors thereby aiming to help create future technological leaders. The School on Wheels project provided training to over 7,200 students in 24 selected secondary schools across 12 states throughout the country. Project STEM supports ICT training for teachers in public and low fee-paying schools and included the development of a STEM app embedded with the national ICT curriculum which is designed to enhance the teaching and delivery of ICT training in the classroom. 

Over 420 youngsters participated in our Skills for Life Program which aims to economically empower individuals through training in entrepreneurship and skills. Participants were also provided with start-up tools to set up small-scale businesses.

IHS Nigeria also supports select CSR-focused thought leadership forums. During 2018, IHS Nigeria sponsored the ThistlePraxis Consulting Sustainability Conversation Program, a platform which sought to discuss recent sustainable development initiatives in Nigeria. Following the event, a white paper was published and sent to policy makers in the private and public sectors for further action.

In 2018, IHS Nigeria's Generator Recycling Program donated recycled generators to local hospitals, schools and orphanages most in need across the country with over 9,100 people benefitting from these new sources of power. Under this initiative, we also maintained our partnership with SOS Children’s Villages and established a new relationship with Pathfinder International - a global non-profit organization that focuses on reproductive health, family planning, HIV/AIDS prevention and care, and maternal health.

IHS Nigeria’s Employee Volunteering Program continues to develop and saw teams contribute to local community building through initiatives such as school rehabilitation, health center renovations, mentoring sessions for school children and charity visits.
