The Nigerian Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (NIEEE) on Saturday told the government of Nigeria to allow the installation of 5G technology across the country as Nigerians would not love the idea of being left out of the global technological industrialization and development.

The 5G was once linked to the pandemic, Coronavirus but most people have been cleared on the issue as 5G cannot be the cause of the pandemic. For more info on that, check here >>>
In an online conference meeting organized by the Nigerian Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (NIEEE) to discuss the 5G technology in the country, the institute concluded that 5G network is even more safe to use compared to 4G network and its juniors because it emits less radiation, and because it uses less oxidation and energy, it will be faster.
The Director of Technical Standards and Network Integrity, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Mr. Bako Wakil said since the technology is not available in the country yet, policies should be set up for it upon its arrival.
According to a report on DAILY POST, NCC director said the ” Nigerian communication commission, NCC has measured the exposure limits of the network from mobile frequencies in line with global standards to ensure safety.”
Mr. Bako Wakil said;
“In NCC, we have been measuring and assessing base station radiations. All equipment coming into Nigeria is allowed after they are certified.
“Radiation coming from mobile base stations or mobile sets are not harmful. We should, as a country, have a policy, 5G is going to transform our people and country.
“We have been carrying out measurements of 5G radiations at NCC, and it is safe. Although it is safe, it is important to adopt safety measures, even water, if not properly used, can harm you.
“NCC has feedback mechanisms where we go round the country in our consumer outreach programmes as well as our town hall meetings, where we ensure stakeholders and consumers meet to address all consumer needs and complaints,”
