The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has issued a statement denying allegations of involvement in the tracking and leakage of telephone conversations of Nigerians by sections of the public.
According to the NCC’s director of public affairs, Reuben Muoka the commission cannot “track” or “leak” phone conversations of anyone, as it goes against the provisions of the Nigerian Communication Act (NCA) 2003 and other laws of the country.
The commission said it has reported the allegations to the relevant security agencies for proper investigation and necessary action.
The NCC reaffirmed its commitment to carry out its responsibilities to the Nigerian people in accordance with the country’s constitution, NCA 2003, other existing laws and global best practices. The commission urged the public to disregard the allegations and assured them that it takes the matter seriously. The NCC’s statement was in response to media inquiries about the alleged involvement of the commission in the telephone tracking and leakage.
