Present at the occasion were representatives of both organizations. The NASRDA team was led by the Director General of NASRDA, Dr Halilu Shaba Ahmad while the CEO of Proforce Limited in the person of Engr Ade Ogundeyin led the Proforce team. Dr. Halilu Shaba Ahmad used the opportunity to talk about the potential and future of launching a satellite in Nigeria.
