NCAA threatens to dismantle 7,000 telecoms towers over safety concerns

25 Apr 2019

The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has threatened to dismantle over 7,000 telecoms masts and towers, after operators failed to obtain the statutory Aviation Height Clearance (AHC). In a statement, the authority claimed that without the requisite AHC, the masts and towers pose a threat to air navigation safety. A 30-day ultimatum has been given to Globacom and ‘other defaulters’ to adhere to regulations or face the ‘mass decommissioning and demolition of all their masts and towers in Nigeria’.
