Vice chairman and chief executive officer, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Prof Umar Danbatta has allayed the fears of Nigerians about the usage of the 5G mobile technology.

Contrary to the widespread belief, Danbatta said the technology has nothing negative to do about the health of the people.

Danbatta made the declaration at a public lecture entitled “5G Mobile Technology: Myths, Realities ,Potentials and Challenges” organised by Kwara State University (KWASU) Malete, held in Ilorin, the state capital.

The Secretary to the Kwara State Government, Prof. Mamman Jibril, represented Governor AbdulRahaman AbdulRazaq at the event.

Danbatta also said the technology, if embraced, would reduce running cost in corporate organisations, private and public institution’s by 50%.

Represented by a director in the commission, Engr Yusuf Asaju, the NCC boss said the benefits of adopting the new technology far outweighs the myths being peddled around about it.

“It has nothing to do with our health. It reduces over head cost by 50 percent,” Danbatta declared.

Earlier, the vice chancellor of KWASU, Prof Mohammed Akanbi, had said that the lecture was organised to provide a veritable platform for enlightening the public on the desirability of 5G technology.

He said 5G technology when deployed would aid teaching and learning in schools and institutions, adding that: “In education sector, we cannot de- emphasise the importance of technology.”
