“So, it’s about people showing that commitment and having that vision that ‘you know what, I’ll play my part no matter the challenges,” she started.

“We won’t be bothered by these challenges; however, I hope we resolve these challenges. One year we don’t even have an office.

“The office we received, given to us by the NCC, we had been indeed pushed away by the honorable Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isah Pantami.

“Within two days, he drove us out. The place was given to us by NCC. You know we simply assist one another, NCC, as a government agency stated there’s a spot we will settle in.

“And simply as we settled in, I was in Ethiopia when I received a call, and I assumed it was a joke. I got here again from Ethiopia on Thursday, and this occurred on Tuesday, and by the time I went to the office on Friday, armed men with weapons have taken over the place.

“I assumed it was a joke; however, right here is the factor: I’m a government worker, so is he. I don’t wish to elevate any mud about this. I’ve written to the appropriate authorities, I’ve complained formally however we’ll let it be. He needs the place, let him take it.

“The office continues to be there, and a whole continues to be vacant.

As I communicate with you, all our gadgets are still locked up. I don’t have a laptop. I don’t have printers. Everything has been locked up. So after COVID-19, I hope we will get a spot and transfer in.
