TheAssociation of Licensed Telecommunications Operators of Nigeria (ALTON) hasdescribed as strange and interesting the threats by the Nigerian Civil AviationAuthority (NCAA) to demolish over 7,000 telecommunications mast in the country.
TheChairman of ALTON, Engr. Gbenga Adebayo, while speaking to Journalists on thesideline of the Vanguard Economy Forum on Telecoms,said having met with the DGof NCAA about three months ago, where the matter of Aviation Height Clearance (AHC) wasdiscussed and concluded on a committee to look into it, it will amount toillegality if the NCAA demolish any telecom mast.
Hewarned that any mast brought down illegally without due consultation would notbe rebuilt and the consequences would be felt by all, adding that the move byNCAA is another attempt to impose unwarranted taxes on the sector, which wasalready overburdened with multiple taxation.
Thereport that the NCAA will bring down telecom mast is strange and interesting.It confirms our position that the telecom sector is a subject of attack fromagencies, he said.
The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) had onTuesday threatened to dismantle over 7,000 telecoms masts and towers, afteroperators failed to obtain the statutory Aviation Height Clearance (AHC).
In a statement, the authority claimed that without the requisite AHC, the masts and towers pose a threat to air navigationsafety. A 30-day ultimatum has been given to Globacom and other defaulters' toadhere to regulations or face the mass decommissioning and demolition of alltheir masts and towers in Nigeria'.
