Governor Masari bans Commercial Phone Charging Points In Some LGAs In Katsina
As part of efforts to combat banditry in the North-West state, Governor Aminu Masari has prohibited all commercial phone charging terminals in various local governments in Katsina.
Masari issued the order on Monday, September 6, while establishing a committee responsible with monitoring and enforcing the state’s recently implemented executive decree.
Jibia, Batsari, Safana, Danmusa, Paskari, Sabuwa, Kurfi, Danja, Kaita, Bakori, Funtua, Kankara, Musawa, Matazu, Dutsima, Mai’adua, Malumfashi, and Funtua are among the impacted local government areas, according to him.
“The latest instruction that we gave out is the closure of all commercial charging points in the most affected local government areas. Commercial charging, we believe, is also an area which is helping the bandits to acquire means of communication.
“We believe with this and further measures we are taking with the Federal Ministry of Communication will also help in restoring normalcy to our respective communities.”
