Sealing Telecom Base Stations offends National Security - Titi Omo-Ettu

A telecommunications engineer took a swipe at the incident of sealing telecommunications base stations describing it as dangerous, tactless and abominable.

Engr. Titi Omo-Ettu
Mr Titi Omo-Ettu, who recently completed a term as President, Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria, ATCON, told a panel of television interviewers on Channels TV that agencies of government must regard telecommunications facilities as national security infrastructure which should neither be destroyed nor prevented from performing optimally no matter what point was being made and under any circumstances.

He considered it wrong to deliberately prevent maintenance services at telecom facilities for whatever reasons as the action could be dangerous to the security of the country if the base station under consideration was a strategic one which a few of them are. He suggested, instead, that such agencies of government should consider sealing the head offices of their offenders rather than toying with critical essential services for society.

He also said all international and world class health Institutions have been saying that the argument that radio frequencies cause cancer in human beings is a popular fallacy.

Engr. Titi Omo-Ettu has thirty-eight years of active participation in the Nigerian telecommunication development. He is a Telecommunications Consultant and Trainer with special focus on education processes, youth development, and universal access.  He served as Consultant to the Nigerian Communications Commission, (NCC) from its inception in 1993 to 2010 serving the Commission in the areas of industry studies and research, universal service plans and internet applications. He offers similar services to private sector clients.
