A cleric, Archbishop Samson Benjamin, on Monday staged a protest calling on the government and telecoms companies in the country not to implement the Fifth Generation Mobile Networks (5G) technology in Nigeria.
According to him, the 5G technology has health implications as it emits a lot of radiation into the atmosphere and causes illnesses.
Archbishop Benjamin, who is the founder of Resurrection Praise Ministry Worldwide, during a protest around parts of Ojo Local Government Area of Lagos State, called on Nigerians not to accept deployment of 5G Tech.
He implored Nigerians to watch what he said was an expository sermon by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome to understand what the dangers inherent in the 5G Tech.
“We should put away our differences and let our leaders know that they are not supposed to make policies for us, without seeking our opinions,” he stated.
While commending the Federal government for its recent stand on the deployment of the 5G Tech in Nigeria, he also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to take another look at the issue.
Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim (Pantami), while reacting to a public outcry over the use of Fifth Generation Mobile Networks (5G), had said no license had been issued on it Nigeria.
Speaking further, Benjamin argued that the technology was being promoted by a few rich people in the world that seek to take absolute control of global activities, by killing Africans through the radiation emitted by the 5G.
“Nigerians should come out and speak against the 5G Tech. It’s not good for us. We are not going to accept it.
“This is a conspiracy. People who do not love us, want to come to Africa, to cause damages. We must shut our doors against them.
“China is number one suspect of the coronavirus. Nigerians say no to China corona-infected products, and aids. We don’t want their help,” he argued.
Continuing, Archbishop Benjamin, who had earlier also taken to the streets in providing foodstuff and cash to people in some parts of the state, to ameliorate the stay-at-home directive from the government, said: “The anger of Nigerians is building up. They want to sell a product to us that will reduce our population. Our population is our strength. 5G technology is a weapon of mass destruction. Africans, and Nigerians, in particular, should not accept it.
“With the 5G technology, people will no longer have secrets, people will no longer have private lives. Nigeria’s military will be left exposed. All that glitters is not gold”, he noted.
He, therefore, called on MTN Nigeria, and other telecommunications companies in the country, to remove the masts that have been erected to demonstrate the technology in Nigeria
He also called on the presidency, National Assembly, Governors, and Houses of Assembly to stand up for the people and protect them from thE harmful technology.
