He continued that BPSR deployed SAT in NigComSat between December, 2018 and February, 2019 enabling BPSR carry out a validated assessment of NigComSat where key documents of NIGCOMSAT were verified. The validation exercise involved a process where the BPSR review all non-sensitive key documents and also undertook an in-depth analysis of specific issues germane to the attainment of the mandate of the organisation.
