Philip Thomas shares advice for Elon Musk before Starlink launch

Ahead of the big launch, Philip Thomas, The Executive Editor of REPORT AFRIQUE International, took to his social media account to share some advice with the Starlink Owner and billionaire Elon Musk.

Starlink Internet, a low-latency, broadband internet system developed by Elon Musk’s Starlink, has been launched in Nigeria. Ahead of the big launch, Philip Thomas, The Executive Editor of REPORT AFRIQUE International, took to his social media account to share some advice with the Starlink Owner and billionaire Elon Musk.

Notably, the media personality shared this advice keeping in mind the situation of Nigeria. He firmly believes that Nigeria’s insecurity agents will use Musk’s Starlink for illegal and underhanded purposes. Philip took to his social media, stating that he expects terrorists and criminal elements involved in kidnappings to be one of the early customers of Elon Musk’s Starlink internet.

He reasoned that the criminal elements would need an easy channel of communication that provides seamless connectivity even in the forests. Musk’s Starlink does just that at incredible speed. Therefore, The executive editor suggests that it is very important for the federal government of Nigeria to get Musk and his firm to support the fight against organized crime in Nigeria. The agreement must form a part of the Nigerian government’s policy before acting out in the Nigerian space.

Comrade Phils, The Executive Editor of REPORT AFRIQUE International, further suggested that It is important that certain communications traced to any Starlink user acting against our national security within our space be traceable. Accordingly, he insisted that the government must ensure that Starlink would be willing to assist them in any matter of such.

At the same time, Philip Thomas pointed out that, in doing so, it would be necessary that Musk demands that Nigeria’s govt also provide a clause for the protection of the rights and privacy of honest and law-abiding users. The protection clause would be to forestall state witchhunt of innocent citizens. The government cannot exploit the innocents by demanding to investigate each activity to establish proof of criminal indulgence before allowing for internal tracing.
