Nasarawa Lawmakers Want To Regulate Activities Of Telecoms Operators

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) –  Nasarawa State House of Assembly says it is working on a proposal to regulate the activities of telecommunications operators in the state.

The Speaker of the House, Mr Danladi Jatau, said this during the proceedings on Monday in Lafia, when he received a report of the Joint Committee on Information/Housing and Environment, from the Chairman, Mr Jonah Ali.

Jatau said that ”a Bill for a Law to make provision for Right of Way in Nasarawa State and for Other Matters Connected There To” was to regulate the activities of telecommunication industry.

He said that the bill, if passed, would regulate mounting of masts and laying of optic fibre cables in the state.

The speaker then slated May 20 for deliberation of the joint committee’s report.

Earlier, Ali, while presenting the report, said the bill, if passed, would also boost the revenue base of the state.

He said that the bill was to give legal permission to individuals by the government, in order to utilise the lands, especially by telecommunication operators, and MDAs, for investment and other purposes,” Ali said.

He appreciated the speaker and members of the house for the confidence reposed in the committee to carry out the assignment.(NAN)
