Global Transaction Nigeria Limited, a company saddled with the responsibility of ensuring that telecommunications infrastructure complies with laws of Osun State has expressed its readiness to begin standard control activities in the state.

The Executive Chairman Mr. Rotimi George Taylor, made this known while fielding questions from journalists on the readiness of the company to carry out audit, inspections of existing installations within the state.

This is to ensure compliance with relevant regulations and ensure notices, guidelines, and regulations necessary to enforce contravention against owners and developers of installations in breach of regulations are done.

Taylor, who lamented how some of the telecommunications companies had been trying to evade dues said Osun state government through GTNL would do everything within the law particularly the State of Osun Environmental Protection Law 2022, to ensure the companies fulfill their financial obligations.

According to the Executive Chairman, since all those companies came to the state to do their businesses it was incumbent upon them to pay their dues since the state government had deemed it fit to provide enabling environment for their business to grow.

He hinted that in the next three months the GTNL would strive to garner generate about N500 million for the state.

He, however, commended Governor Ademola Adeleke, who he said had decided not to put the burden on the citizens of the state and had contacted them to carry out the audit.

He said: “Osun State Government has entered into an agreement with Global Transactions Nigeria Limited to ensure that telecommunications infrastructure complies with the laws of Osun state, particularly the State of Osun Environmental Protection Law 2022.

“GTNL is empowered to carry out audits, inspections of existing installations within the state to ensure compliance with relevant regulations and ensure notices, guidelines, and regulations necessary to enforce contravention against owners and developers of installations in breach of regulations are done.”
