The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) says there is no health issue surrounding telecom masts and towers mounted anywhere in the country.

The Executive Vice-Chairman of the commission, Prof. Umar Danbatta, said this in a statement issued at the ongoing 2017 Enugu International Trade Fair on Monday.

Belief is myth

Danbatta said such belief and claim were mere imagination and myth, adding that ”it has no scientific base.”

”The commission still maintains that the World Health Organisation (WHO) has affirmed that no result of any such hazard has been established against base stations.”

Danbatta said any individual or community adducing such reasons to deny right of way to the telecom companies, and prevent them from expanding services are invariably contributing to the poor quality of service in the network.
