The Kaduna Government has announced restoration of Telecommunication services in the state.
The restoration is coming one month after it was shut down on the orders of the state security council.
While addressing press conference on Friday, the Kaduna commissioner of internal security and home affairs, Samuel Aruwan said all relevant government agencies have been directed to laise with the telecommunications operators to restore full services in the states.
According to the commissioner, the telecommunications shutdown helped the security agencies to achieve “some results”
“The security agencies have now notified the government that telecom services can be restored,” he said.
“Along with the other measures in the security containment order, the telecoms shutdown had helped the security agencies to achieve some results, which the security forces will reel out soon.
“The prolonged application of this measure was always out of the question, due to its impact on the legitimate activities of citizens and businesses.
“Residents are advised that the restoration of full services in the affected areas may unfold over a few days, as the service providers mobilise to power and boost their transmission systems accordingly.
“The Kaduna state government regrets the inconveniences residents of the affected LGAs may have encountered as a result of the shutdown. The state government wishes to commend the sacrifices made by residents while this temporary measure lasts.”
