The Nigerian Communications Commission has urged Nigerians to protect telecommunications infrastructure, saying that vandalism, theft, and hostility from the host community are among the major setbacks to the telecoms industry.

The Director, Zonal Operations, NCC, Amina Shehu, said this at a sensitisation programme organised by the commission at Wannune, Tarka Local Government Area of Benue State.

She was represented by the Assistant Director, Zonal Operations, NCC, Abubakar Usman.

This was contained in a press statement from the NCC.

Shehu said “One of the major challenges to quality of service that operator provides to you, is vandalism of telecom infrastructure, such as Base Transceiver Stations.

“Therefore, it is imperative for the public to regard telecom facilities as collectively-owned infrastructure that are crucial and essential for the provision of efficient and acceptable telecom services”.
