Why I refused using phone for over one year – Isa Pantami

The Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, has disclosed that he refused to use a mobile phone for over one year when it was introduced into the country.

Pantami said his refusal was due to the negative belief he had.

He made the remark while allaying fears of Nigerians towards the deployment of the 5G Network.

The Minister explained that Nigerians have the right to be skeptical about the deployment of the 5G Network due to their beliefs.

He disclosed this at the public presentation of National Policy on 5G Network and Spectrum for 5G Deployment in Abuja.

The Minister noted that some negative theories associated with the 5G network in Nigeria are false.

According to Pantami, Nigerians hardly accept things without looking at the source or authenticity.

He recounted how Nigerians had in 2020 complained that 5G Network brought COVID-19 into Nigeria.

Pantami said: “I can personally recall that when mobile phones came into Nigeria, some people resisted and there was an allegation that it was linked to cancer and many more.

“I will not feel shy to say that even my humble self, I couldn’t accept the use of mobile phones till after one year. A friend of mine who was working here in Abuja then purchased the mobile phone, and SIM card and sent it to me and said I must use it.”
