The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, has revealed that the controversial Fifth Generation Mobile Network, popularly known to Coronavirus as 5 G, is not connected.
He noted that no international body, such as the World health organization
and the International Telecommunication Union has linked 5G network to Coronavirus outbreak globally.
Pantami while speaking on Sunday’s Channels TV stated that the administration headed by President Muhammadu Buhari will not take any steps on the Fifth Generation Mobile Network based on the online report making rounds.
He said, “Firstly, the government will not work with what is said online. We always
make decisions based on expert opinions, based on research.
“When it comes to health, we have (the) World Health Organization and a lot of healthy bodies.” “I just want you to do any research they have conducted and (in which they) have made their position on the relationship between 5 G and COVID-19. I have yet to see somebody from the World Health Organization.
He states that this is a globally accommodating body for our health experts. We have ITU, the International Telecommunications Union.” “I’m just challenging you to let me know that this is the position of one expert or ITU as a body or any other professional body that has carried out the research.
Recall that the Senator in the National Assembly representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye, had charged Buhari with publicly kicking off the launch of the 5 G network.
