Plans are underway to establish a more effective emergency communication centre for distress calls on security and other issues of urgent importance in Oyo state.

The state governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde stated this during a courtesy call on him by the management team of the Nigeria Communication Commission NCC in his office.

Governor Makinde who noted that an emergency call centre was located at Monatan in Ibadan, said his administration would harness full potentials of the centre for the benefit of the people and the government of Oyo state.

He said his government would set up a team to work with the NCC on information communication technology and telecommunication.

The Governor equally called for assistance from the Commission to get data on Mast installations around the state and prompt payment of taxes from telecom companies.

Earlier, Head of Emergency Communication Centre of the NCC, Alhaji Mohammed Ibrahim said an emergency call centre has become necessary in this era of security challenges and expressed willingness of the commission to partner the state government on telecom related issues.

South West zonal controller of NCC, Mr. Yomi Arowosafe and other senior management staff were on the delegation.
