The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC ) has reiterated that it has not licensed any telecoms firm to provide 5G services.
A statement by its Director, Public Affairs, Dr. Henry Nkemadu, said the attention of the Commission had been drawn to a mischievous statement making the rounds on social media, such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, and LinkedIn, that the industry would switch on 5G in Lagos between last Sunday and tomorrow.
The statement from the faceless individuals or groups cannot be further from the truth.
The Commission has unequivocally stated that there is no deployment of 5G in Nigeria at the moment.
Executive Vice Chairman, NCC Prof Umar Garba Danbatta, said:
“The trial, among others, was to study and observe any health or security challenges the 5G network might present.”
“Relevant stakeholders, including members of the security agencies, were invited to participate during the trial.”
