It was gathered that Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta, had to make an unscheduled visit to the State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, and the government magnanimously waived the permit fee of N221million for the deployment of fibre infrastructure in that state.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), the industry regulator, has secured a N221 million waiver permit for MTN from the Kano State government.The waiver, which came timely, is to help MTN complete a network infrastructure upgrade and fibre layout in the state.

According to information gathered yesterday, some staff of Huawei, working on the telecommunication infrastructure expansion in Kano on behalf of MTN, were arrested by the officials of the government’s agency, Kano State Urban Planning and Development Authority (KANUPDA), a development which put a stop to the project.

The situation could have adverse effects on Quality of Service experienced among millions of service subscribers in the state and beyond, before it was swiftly nipped in the bud.
