I C & T Ltd emerged in 1995, from the offshoot of Centre for Advancement Studies at Ilorin, Kwara State, IN CENTRAL Nigeria. The Centre, founded on January14, 1991 was initially conceived to offer training and research in computing. However, market trends created the need for a resourceful I.T. services firm to provide computer solution for the Ilorin environs.
We then at CFAS quickly rose to the challenges by expanding the original concept into a full blown I.T. services group, providing the under listed services;
- Computer Hardware and Software Distribution and Re-manufacturing.
- Design and Installation of Local, Metropolitan and Wide Area Networks.
- System software Development and Implementation.
- Internet Solutions, Systems Automation and Data Management.
Thrilled by our early success, we therefore incorporated a more appropriate business name
I C & T (Informatics Company and Telematics) to suit our current service offering, reducing CFAS to a subsidiary specializing in I.T Education and Consulting.
When we expanded our IT services offering; our customer base also increased necessitating our opening offices in Lagos and Abuja. We gradually assumed a national outlook. We also moved our corporate headquarters to Abuja. Under a positioning program tagged “Strategy 2000”, we decided to specialize our services. This led to the spinning off of every core service offering into a corporate subsidiary unit, from where five core subsidiary units emerged.

I C & T Group consists of the following subsidiary business units:
- Informatics Company and Telematics Ltd
- Infosol Software & System W/A Ltd
