The Kaduna State Government has reacted to report that it plans to shutdown telecommunication services in the state.
According to a statement issued on Tuesday in Kaduna by Muyiwa Adekeye, Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication, the government says it has not made such a decision, neither has it announced any such plan.
“The Kaduna State Government did not reach out to any federal agency to request a telecoms shut down and it has not in any way ordered or effected a communications shutdown,’’ the statement said.
It called on residents to ignore the rumours saying that is a fake news which some people were trying to pass off as genuine by placing KDSG logo on their false statements.
“The Kaduna State Government is transparent about security matters. If a telecoms shutdown is deemed necessary that decision will be formally announced in a properly signed statement posted on official information handles,” it said.
