The Minister of Communications Technology, Omobola Johnson, has promised to tackle the poor quality of service in the telecoms sector, adding that the issue will soon become a thing of the past.

Mrs Johnson made the statement on Thursday during the House of Representatives’ Committee on Communication’s oversight visit to the ministry.

According to the minister, “we are working hard to improve the operating environment towards ensuring that issues of inadequate number of base stations, arbitrary cost and lengthy process of acquiring right of way were addressed.

She also said interruptions to cable laying, willful and accidental damage of fibre optic cables and base stations, among others, would be resolved for service quality to improve.
