Mobile Networks in the country are playing their own role by chiding the citizens of the country, to do as little as staying safe.
Yesterday, MTN, Airtel and probably a few other networks updated their icons on the phones of their users, if you’re observant, up-till now, looking at your phone, you would see a phrase such as “stay safe”
Telecommunication companies using “stay safe” as its network bar is to sensitize its customers, although, MTN is the only telecoms operator that has ordered staff to work from home as a means of curbing the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
Some of the things they set out to do are as follows;
- From Monday, March 23, most of its staff would start working from home as the company assured that its operations would continue to run at full scale with essential staff working limited hours on site.
- As part of a concerted effort to support its customers, MTN Nigeria would help amplify government’s sensitization efforts using more channels to deliver health and safety information and would suspend fees for all money transfers using its Momo Agent network.
- The company will temporarily close some of its stores. The ones that will remain open will operate reduced hours and maintain strict hygiene and social distancing measures.
