NITP Condemns at Indiscriminate installation of Telecom Masts

 The indiscriminate erection  of telecommunication masts and citing of filling stations in Nigerian cities across the country do not only endangered lives but have also threatened the environment, President of Nigeria Institute of Town Planners (NITP), Steve Onu, has warned.
Onu gave the warning in Calabar when the Deputy Governor of Cross River State, Mr Efiok Cobham laid the foundation stone for their three storey secretariat.
He lamented that the development was a disturbing one, which must be checked for the safety of citizens.

He urged the appropriate government agencies to urgently intervene before the trend becomes more dangerous.

Onu lauded the state government for keeping the state capital the cleanest in the country.
He also lauded the state for setting up urban development centres in the 18 local government areas of the state to ensure that human settlements are properly ordered among other developmental plans.
Cobham while acknowledging the commendation, however described some areas in the state, particularly the capital city, as “disaster waiting to happen” due to faulty or lack of planning.
He attributed this to the negligence of town planners who he said should know better.
