The state government of Kaduna debunks claims in the media that it intends to shut down all telecommunication services in the state.—

The state government is rumored to be planning to shut down telecoms services as part of efforts to combat insecurity in the state, according to rumors circulating online today.

The communications advisor to the state governor, Muyiwa Adekeye, issued a statement disputing the rumor.

”The Kaduna State Government has no plans to shutdown telecoms services. It has not made such a decision, neither has it announced any such plans.

The Kaduna State Government did not reach out to any federal agency to request a telecoms shutdown, and it has not in any way ordered or effected a communications shutdown.

Residents of Kaduna State should ignore these rumours. It is fake news which some people are trying to pass off as genuine by placing KDSG logo on their false statements. It is simply not true.

Citizens should ignore the fake news. There is no shutdown of telecoms services in Kaduna State. The Kaduna State Government is transparent about security matters. Were a telecoms shutdown deemed to be necessary, that decision would have been formally announced in a properly signed statement posted on official information handles.

Signed

Muyiwa Adekeye
Special Adviser to the Governor (Media & Communication)
7th September 2021”
