The Head of OGERO, Imad Kreidiyeh, has threatened to resign from his position in light of the communications outage that later for hours in Beirut.
“At 11:15 pm communications went down in Corniche al-Mazraa due to a silly reason, which is the delay of a Telecom Ministry accountant in signing a paper, because he was not present there. Bureaucracy is killing our efforts to provide services to citizens in this country.
There will be a meeting tomorrow morning at the Telecom Ministry and OGERO cannot work without capabilities. If I cannot provide internet, it will be better to leave my post.
Fuel has been secured for the Asrhafieh and Corniche al-Mazraa stations, and the Mazraa station is expected to return online within half an hour, but the quantity can only serve for three days after which we will return to the same dilemma.”Imad Kreidieh, Chairman Director General, OgeroTelecom
