Mobile Nigeria: Ten years of mobile phone

Mobile Nigeria:

Mobile Nigeria Ten Years Of Mobile Phone

 

Ten years of mobile phone, Nigeria went from inadequate fixed lines to an explosion of mobile phones everywhere.

When you give Nigerians the opportunity to recall there experience ten years back when there were very few lines and phones were supposed to be only for the rich, all they remember is the distress they had to go through in order to own a phone or even maintain one. Those were the days that out of 1,2Million installed lines about 400,000 were active.

However, as at June 2011 the records of Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC), indicated that the number of active lines (subscribers) stood at 90,533,178. What a world of difference.

Today Nigerians now having easy access to cheaper and everywhere available voice calls and other value added services can only recall painful memories of the pre-deregulation era.

What are the painful memories Nigerians remember now?

  • The pilgrimage they had to undertake in order to make international  calls then

  • The poor telecoms service delivery prevalent at the time

  • High tariff prevailing at the time

  • Tos action of NITEL

I wonder what will be their memories another ten years from now.

There is no doubt that the telecoms industry has:

  • brought a large inflow of investment into the country in the last 10 years,

  •  created reasonable employment opportunity and

  • has brought a large sum of revenue to the Federal Government through the regulatory body in form of licensing fees and sale of spectrum.

However, nobody is talking about the negative effect of the GSM explosion on you and me. In countries where cell phones were introduced much earlier than Nigeria, recent studies have found significantly higher risks for brain and salivary gland tumors among people who have used cell phones for 10 years or longer. These are Nations where cell phones are secondary means of communication rather than primary.

Nigeria need to urgently carry out in-depth research in view of the fact that here; cell phones have become the primary means of communication rather than secondary. The average Nigerian stays longer on the phone than its European or American counterpart. This can be seen from the various promotions of free night calls by the different network operators.


Today, you and I carry about two, three or even four cell phones.

Some of us even have a network operator base station/mast installed in our compound or office.

Some are even lobbying or negotiating with one to come and install its base station/mast in their compound or office.

Your health might be already compromised or in danger of being compromised.

Below are some of the negative effects the Network Operators won’t want you to known about and the regulator won’t say anything about.

  • Constant headaches (migraine) in the last few years

  •  Increased high blood pressure in the last 10years

  • Partial stroke or the risk of suffering from it in the not too distant future

  • Diabetes

  • Cancer or the risk of having one

You have a right to know the level of risk you might have been exposed to.

Hi My Name Is Emmanuel

        I make bold to say that the coming of

GSM to Nigeria has no doubt transformed

the telecoms connectivity of the nation.

        After all I was physically involved

in trying to establish an interconnect regime

at the time of coming to being

of other network operators

 

Between 1999 and 2001, while the number

of installed telephone lines was about

1.2Million, the connected lines

stood at about 400,000.

 

However, as at June 2011,

the number of active lines (subscribers)

stood at 90,533,178 according to figures

stated by the

Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC)

 

Mobile GSM: 84,093,173

        Mobile (CDMA): 5,558,612

        Fixed Wired/Wireless: 881,393

        Total:             90,533,178

Judging from these statistics,

Nigeria is indeed the fastest growing

telecoms industry in Africa

 

No doubt the industry in the last 10 years

has brought a large inflow of investment

into the country, created

reasonable employment opportunity

and has brought a large sum of revenue

to the Federal Government

through the regulatory body in the form

of licensing fees and sale of spectrum.

 

Enough of the positive aspects

let us talk about you and me

that form the statistics of active lines.

 

Over 4 billion people around the world

own cell phones and as the market

for new devices are growing,

so has concerns about the safety

of cell phone radiation.

 

Recent studies have found significantly

higher risks

for brain and salivary gland tumors

among people who have used

cell phones for 10 years or longer.

 

The state of the science is provocative

and troubling, and much more

research is essential.

 

Indeed there is urgent need

for Nigeria

to carry out an in-depth research

in view of the fact that cell phones

have become the primary means of

communication rather than secondary.

 

This is even so because the average

Nigerian

stays longer on the phone than its

European or American counterpart.

This is evident by the promotion of

free night calls by the various

network operators.

 

Let’s Talk About You And Me Now

 

How many mobile phones do you own

 1, 2, 3 or even 4?

 

        Do you have a network operator,

base station/mast installed

in your compound?

 

Are you thinking of negotiating with

a network operator for a base station/mast

to be installed in your compound

because of the attractive payout?

 

Do you have a network operator,

base station/mast

installed in your office premises?

 

        Are you trying to lobby or negotiate

with one

Many people living near masts

are experiencing increasing health problems

at levels as low as 0.05 volts per metre,

especially sleep disruption, headaches,

tiredness,

behavior changes in children, epilepsy,

nosebleeds and skin complaints.

 

Since the Dead have no electrical

brain activity with which

an external electromagnetic field

can interfere; will you rather be dead

so that the negative effects of GSM

(electromagnetic fields) will not

have any adverse effect on you?

 

I’m sure you will prefer to be alive.
