- By Zakariyya Adaramola

The Federal Government has approved an Emergency Communicat­ions Centre for Zamfara State to support the fight against insecurity.

The Minister


Communicat­ions and Digital Economy, Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, according to a statement by his spokesman, Uwa Suleiman, disclosed this in Abuja yesterday while receiving Zamfara State Governor Muhammad Bello Matawalle.

He said the centre would be fully operationa­l in the next few months.

“This facility will in no small measure aid in the fight against the challenges of insecurity and will also create jobs in the state”, the minister said.

Matawalle was quoted as saying that the impact of the digital economy was yielding positive results in his state as the minister had successful­ly bridged the access gaps in several communitie­s that lacked telecommun­ications services.
