The Federal Government has discouraged mobile telecommunication providers from indecent handling of their customers face disciplinary actions.

Mr. Adebayo Shittu, the Minister of Communications, made this known in a statement released through his Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Victor Oluwadamilare, in Abuja on Wednesday.

He announced this after a meeting held privately with officials of mobile communication company, MTN.

The statement reads, “The minister’s office has been inundated with several complaints from Nigerians, particularly women in veil, about the way they were being treated, sometimes humiliated by the workers of the telecommunications companies nationwide.

“According to some of the complaints, ‘Women in purdah dresses were requested to remove their veils in the public, despite the request by such women that a place should be provided out of the public glare for only female officials to attend to them, adding that all entreaties failed, but rather, they were allegedly accused of being Boko Haram agents and they were refused registration after several altercations in some of the registration centres.”

The Federal Government under present leader, President Muhammadu Buhari has left no stone untouched in a bid to discharge its duties. It has put the welfare of the masses as the core of governance.
