The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Pantami, has said that the Federal Government would soon deploy the Five Generation (5G) network in Nigeria.
The minister made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.
According to Pantami, the decision to deploy the 5G network followed an outcome of investigations, research and trial, making it clear that it wouldn’t pose any threat relating to security or health.
He stated that the national policy on 5G stands at 95 per cent done and will be presented to the Federal Executive Council (FEC) in due course.
The minister also refuted claims that COVID-19 was related to the deployment of the 5G communications network.
“I want to give you the assurance that 5G communication network is in the pipeline,” Pantami said.
