He said: “We have succeeded in resolving a contentious matter leading to sealing of 47 BTS in the state. The BTS are going to be unsealed immediately. This would enhance the challenge we have of providing telecom access in the state.”

Speaking further, Danbatta expressed satisfaction with the assurances given by the governor in tackling the concerns of multiple taxations and right of way, which are among the non-technical factors conspiring to degrade quality of telecoms services in the country.
