Nigeria is about to score another goal in the area of communication technology as an indigenous company, the Slok Group, is set to roll out the first made in Nigeria mobile phones.

The Nigerian behind the company, former Abia State governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, while dropping this hint in Lagos, on Tuesday, said the Slok mobile phone had been built to be sold in Nigeria and across Africa.

Kalu, who said the phone would have the lowest end of the mobile phone market, assured Nigerians that the presence of the phone in the market would meet their yearnings for the type of utility phone they have long desired.

 “Very soon, the Slok Group is rolling out the first ever indigenously made mobile phone called Slok Mobile. It is a phone we have built to be sold in Nigeria and across Africa.

“I am rolling out the Slok Telephone in less than eight weeks time. We will have the lowest end of the mobile phone market. The Slok Telephone has all the packages of a modern phone, it is going to be a utility phone that Nigerians have been looking for.

“We are a truly an African company but proudly Nigerian. So, this is what is coming on board. In the next eight weeks, the phones will be on the streets of Nigeria. We are going to roll out the phones on the Nigerian, Congo, Guinea, South Africa and other African markets,” he said.

According to Kalu, the phone has patent right in the United States and other countries as well as Europe.

This is the first time a Nigerian conglomerate will be rolling out a phone to take over the market.
