  2. i dont know if this is a good move,we have lived so long with telecommunication and relied so heavily on it.I am just reasoning from the line of there being and emergency and the urgent need to reach a loved one.
    nevertheless, i am all for anything that will curb this insanity. may God protect us all.

  3. Seriously Stella, I travelled to sokoto to visit some loved ones yesterday only for the network to be shut down. I couldn't make call nor come on line, it was like hell for me. Thank God it has been fixed again. Please oooo I intend to leave sokoto on Saturday, I pray they don't shut it down again..
