Observe Global Trends Before Deploying 5G Technology, Nigerian Senate Tells Federal Government

The senate, on Wednesday, advised the federal government to observe the trends in other countries before the planned rollout of 5G technology in Nigeria.

This followed the adoption of the report of its joint committee on science and technology, ICT, cyber crime, and primary health at Wednesday’s plenary.

Presenting the report, Oluremi Tinubu, chairperson of the committee, said investigation revealed that there was no connection between COVID-19 and 5G network technologies.

There have been conspiracy theories linking 5G technology to the coronavirus, but a fact check by Decency Global News had also proved otherwise.

According to NAN, Tinubu, however, noted that there is a need to observe the trends worldwide, and also sensitise the public before the federal government begins deployment in Nigeria.

“Concerning the interaction between COVID-19 and 5G network technologies, the joint committee confirms and is convinced that there is no connection between them,” she said.

“The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is caused by biological agent virus, which is scientifically unconnected with the 5G technology.

“While the joint committee clarifies that there is no 5G deployment in Nigeria at the moment and that no licence has been issued to any mobile number operator on commercial basis, it is our recommendation that Nigeria should still observe the trend of 5G deployments around the globe and engage in extensive sensitisation of the public through all channels before commencement of commercial deployments in the country.”
