…Presents Danbatta with Certificate of Performance
The management of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has been commended for driving various regulatory initiatives for the development of the country’s digital economy.
The commendation, made by a coalition of over 180 civil society organizations under the aegis of the Civil Society Groups for Good Governance (CSGGG), was made by the group’s president, Comrade Ogakwu Dominic, when the group visited the commission’s head office in Abuja on Thursday, October 21, 2021 to present an award and appreciation letter to the executive vice-president, Prof. Umar Danbatta.
According to Dominic, the certificate of performance presented to Danbatta was in recognition of his efforts in driving regulatory initiatives under his supervision and, more importantly, to appreciate the NCC’s support for the successful hosting of a recently-concluded ‘Round-table on Digital Economy’.
“The EVC has demonstrated a high level of patriotism, commitment and statesmanship. As such, the certificate of performance (CoP) is to commend you for your passionate leadership, focused on effective growth and advancement of the Nigerian economy as the basis for enhanced national development,” Dominic said.
Receiving the delegation on behalf of the EVC, the assistant director, digital economy, NCC, Uket Bassey, appreciated the award and certificate presented to the NCC boss, saying they were symbolic coming from an important organisation like the Civil Society Groups for Good Governance.
Bassey said, as the telecom regulator, the commission aims to support and partner with all relevant stakeholders and Nigerians at large.
A statement by the commission’s director of public affairs, Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, said the reforms being put in place by the commission will ensure sustained growth of the country’s socio-economic system through the promotion of universal access and services to all Nigerians, regardless of their circumstances.
