Hon Saheed Fijabi-Akinade, Chairman, House Committee on Communications investigating the Telecommunication providers on the massive loss of jobs, revenue and other sharp practices in the Telecoms industry has issued a week ultimatum to CEOs of five Mobile to appear before the House or face the wrath of the law.
Hon. Fijabi, who handed down the ultimatum in Abuja on Wednesday, directed all the affected CEOs to appear before it on next week Wednesday unfailingly with relevant documents related with the allegations against them or be sanctioned.
He stated that all the relevant documents must reach the Secretariat of the Committee latest by June 12, while no representation of the invited CEOs would be acceptable to the Committee as the committee needed to submit its final report to the House.
On their parts, representatives of all the service providers present requested for more time to enable them search for relevant documents required by the Committee, a situation which the committee condemned and described as unacceptable to the parliament.
They said that their CEOs were unavoidably absent due to one reason or the other and pleaded for more time to collate all the relevant documents needed before the Committee for defence.
The affected service providers are Mobile Telecommunications Network (MTN), Global Communications (Glo), Airtel, Etisalat and Ntel.
