NCC, NESREA lock horns over MTN base station

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and the National Environment Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NASREA) lock horns over whose mandate it is to regulate base stations.

The latest in contention was the base station belonging to MTN Nigeria located at Efab Estate, Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
This follows the unsealing of the base station hitherto sealed by NESREA by the operatives of NCC on Monday.
Officials of NCC confirmed that NESREA's action was tantamount to regulatory interference in the telecommunications industry in Nigeria.

“It’s an interference on NCC’s regulatory activities as NASREA discountenanced the Commission's regulation on installation of masts and towers,” declared the Director of Public Affairs at NCC, as quoted in a press statement made available to ITRealms Online by the Head, Media and Public Relations, Mr. Reuben Muoka immediately after the unsealing.
