As Nigeria marks 20 years of her digital communication, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has clinched more awards for its role in facilitating the revolution through effective regulation.

The awards were conferred on the commission and its management at different fora organised to commemorate 20 years of revolutionary digital communication in Nigeria.

Besides the serial honour which comes with the celebrations of two decades of the GSM revolution, the commission also won awards at annual events organised by strategic stakeholders, including the Nigerian telecom sector’s equivalent of Oscars, the Nigeria Tech Innovations and Telecoms Awards (NTITA) 2021.

At NTITA awards which held in Lagos, NCC received the ‘Outstanding Telecom Regulator of the Year’ award, while its CEO and executive vice-chairman, Prof. Umar Danbatta, was honoured with the ‘Telecoms Industry Leader’ award.

A week earlier, at another event organised by the Association of Licensed Telecoms Operators of Nigeria (ALTON) and the Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria (ATCON), in collaboration with Digivation Network, the commission had received ‘The Premier African Regulator’ award, while Danbatta was also honoured with the ‘Regulatory Excellence Award’ and the executive commissioner, stakeholder management, Adeleke Adewolu, received ‘The Outstanding Digital Impact Personality’ award at the event tagged ‘20 Years of Digital Revolution Powered by GSM’ in Abuja.

Similarly, the commission also received ‘Technology Transformer Award’ at another event organised by E-Business Life magazine to mark the 20th year of the birth of GSM in Lagos.

Additionally, just over the weekend, the NCC also received the ‘Regulator of the Year’ award at the New Telegraph Awards 2021, in Lagos.

Meanwhile, a statement signed by the commission’s director of public affairs, Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, commended stakeholders who gathered at various events where the commission and its leaders were honoured, for their dedicated solidarity.

Also, he thanked the various stakeholders who recognised the commission with landmark awards, for the impeccable honours. Adinde stated that the number of awards presented to the NCC in a fortnight testified to the strong collaboration between the commission and the stakeholders, as well as a strong conviction that NCC is fulfilling its mandate.
