The Federal Capital Development Authority, FCDA, has threatened to pull the plug on Mobile Communication giants, Globacom, over an outstanding N1 billion debt, sparking new fears of a shutdown of phone and internet signals in the nation’s capital.
This newspaper gathered that the FCDA is poised for a showdown with GLO, described by officials as a major debtor, just as the mobile company face mass disconnection in the days ahead.
The threat is very real that the FCDA have run out of patience,” an official is quoted as saying Thursday in Abuja.
According to findings from the authority, officials were concerned with Glo’s failure to pay for the use of communication ducts. The ducting effect often results in signals reaching places that are beyond the horizon with improved signal strengths.
FCDA said for months, they had been groaning under severe constraints because of unpaid debts from Globacom.
The FCDA, which put the total debt at over N1 billion, also accused Glo of failing to pay up their bills.
