Telecom Cases - FG Consults NCC Before Action. FORTHWITH, no Telecom base station may be sealed by any government agency without first reverting to the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, and the Ministry of Environment.

Also, the 18-month period during which it takes the Ministry of Environment to process Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) reports in respect of base stations has been reviewed to 12 weeks.

These directives came at the end of a meeting between two ministers, Hadiza Ibrahim Mailafia of the Ministry of Environment, and Mrs OmoTelecom Cases - FG Consults NCC Before Actiona Johnson of the Communications Technology ministry. Both ministers met in furtherance of efforts to resolve the conflict in regulatory roles between two government agencies, the National Environmental Standards Regulatory and Enforcement Agency (NESREA), and the telecoms regulator, the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC.

It would be recalled that a few weeks ago, NESREA sealed a base station belonging to one of the top telcos for not adhering to its 10-metre setback to property rule. NCC responded by unsealing the station, while NESREA went back and re-sealed the station.

No communique was issued at the end of the ministers’ meeting which took place at the Ministry of Environment. Chief executives of both NESREA and NCC, Mrs. Ngeri Benebo and Dr Eugene Juwah respectively, were in attendance.

However, a source told Vanguard that NCC at the meeting insisted that it had the right to set regulations for the Telecom industry and that its five-metre setback prescribed more than eight years ago, met with internationally acceptable safety and health standards. NESREA countered this and stood its grounds that its 10-metre setback, prescribed about two years ago, must be complied with.

The source added that NCC cited security implications and quality of service issues resulting from the closure of live base stations whose installations it had approved after compliance with its five-metre setback.

Further, the source disclosed that the meeting agreed that base stations to be built in the future must comply with NESREA’s 10-metre setback prescription, until NCC and NESREA regulations are harmonised and the impact of this prescription experienced along the way.

While controversy ignited by the actions of the two agencies of government was on-going, EVC of NCC, Dr. Juwah alerted the nation of dangers posed by any agency or government at any level sealing base stations as it not only has security implications, it helps degrade quality of service and connectivity around the country. He condemned resort to sealing of base stations for whatever reason as there were other ways to enforce sanctions against operators in the industry.

The reduction of the 18-month EIA window to 12 weeks by the Environment Minister will be welcome by operators; it had taken about two years hitherto for a base station to come to life as NESREA’s EIA procedures are carried out during rainy season, dry season and interfacing weather conditions.
