Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has warned against vandalism of telecommunication infrastructure, stressing that the act is compromising federal government’s efforts toward achieving 30 per cent broadband penetration in 2018.
Miss Helen Obi, the commission’s head of Zonal Operations in Niger, said this recently, at a one-day sensitisation programme on ‘Protection of Telecommunication Infrastructure.’
According to her, telecom infrastructure serves all citizens and should be owned collectively and everyone should work against its vandalism so that it can serve the purpose for which it is meant.
“We are here to sensitise the people as stakeholders not only as consumers, including local governments and agencies of federal government, on the need to protect telecom infrastructure.
“This is actually key to the 8-point agenda of the NCC Chief Executive, Prof Umar Danbatta, to ensuring quality service and broadband penetration.
“This is because tampering with these infrastructure compromises the efforts of government to meet the 30 per cent broadband penetration target for 2018.”
She said so far, NCC had achieved 22 per cent broadband penetration and hopes to reach 30 per cent target.
