5G Technology not Harmful, Poses no Risks — Pantami
TECH DIGEST – The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ibrahim Pantami, Friday said there is no known scientific evidence to suggest that the Fifth Generation (5G) technology is harmful and poses risks to public health and safety.
He dismissed fears about the deployment of the technology in Nigeria, asserting that government would do everything possible to address the safety concerns being raised in some quarters on the matter.
A statement emanating from the Public Affairs Department of the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, noted that the Minister’s position was contained in his address to an investigative public hearing by the Senate Joint Committee on Communications; Science and Technology; Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and Cyber Crimes.
The Committee also had Primary Health Care and Communicable Diseases as members.
