The National Communications Commission has refuted a trending social media story claiming that the commission has ordered telecom service providers to shutdown their sites in Katsina State as was effected in the neighbouring Zamfara State.
This is contained in a statement by, Abdu Labaran Malumfashi,DG Media and issued to a newsmen on Monday.
The Executive Vice Chaiman/CEO of NCC, Professor Umar D. Danbatta, who spoke to the the state government, said the story was false.
The NCC VC/CEO added that the purported letter trending in the social media was a cloned version of the one sent to Zamfara State, where there is a TOTAL shutdown of telecom sites.
He therefore advised that the trending news suggesting that similar action would be effected in Katstina State should be DISREGARDED, as it did not emanate from the Commission.
