Matawalle restores telecommunication networks in Zamfara
Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle of Zamfara State has commanded the rapid restoration of communications networks that were disrupted owing to insecurity in the state’s 13 local government areas.
According to a Daily Post investigation, eight local government districts’ communications networks were restored on Sunday night.
It was discovered that the network was not powerful enough in some locations, and experts predicted that it would take some time before it reached stability.
According to a villager, Alhaji Ibrahim Abubakar, “I was in my room in the village when somebody called me on the phone from Anka Local Government Area of the state and we discussed.
“It seemed to me like magic because since last Saturday when the Governor made the promise that the telecommunication network would be restored and nothing happened since then.”
WITHIN NIGERIA gathered that the remaining five local government areas would be restored today, Monday, and the whole rural areas would enjoy telecommunication networks within the week.
Recall that Matawalle had earlier blocked all the telecommunication networks in the state including Gusau, the state capital, due to banditry activities ravaging the state.
He restored the networks in Gusau after much lamentations from residents who were complaining of economic hardship due to the telecommunication network blockage.
