About Hudson Dekker Limited
Hudson Dekker Limited is a wholly owned Nigerian firm focused on delivering next generation solutions developed specifically for education, health, and other sectors, that affect the social infrastructure space in Nigeria. The company has offices in Lagos, the commercial capital, and Abuja, Nigeria. The primary activity of the Company is investment in publicly and privately financed social infrastructure solutions development and delivery across the country, with emphasis on rural communities.
Infrastructure development in Nigeria is relatively new from a public private partnership (PPP) perspective as most of the available infrastructure until recently was funded and managed solely by the Federal and State governments. However, due to the limited resources available to both levels of government, it has become necessary for private investors to partner with government authorities to ensure that the right infrastructure is provided for the general public and rural communities at affordable prices. Most of the projects currently being developed under the PPP concept are critical infrastructure projects such as roads, bridges, airports, major water schemes, and energy power grids. Hudson Dekker sees a unique opportunity in focusing on improving the social service infrastructures such as education, healthcare, and potable water in rural communities.
