StarTimes TV, one of Nigeria’s leading pay TV companies, has announced it will begin broadcasting in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, reports Gabriella Opara.
The move comes after the firm pledged to deliver affordable and quality entertainment to every home in Nigeria.
Qasim Elegbede, StarTimes’ brand and marketing director, said the company’s latest location marks a significant milestone for the growth of its business, adding: “Maiduguri is an important market for us as we expand our offering across the globe.”
