The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has assured that the Code of Corporate Governance in the telecom industry is set to address the massive interconnection indebtedness and the unethical practice of call masking.
The Board Chairman of the Commission, Senator Olabiyi Durojaiye, gave the assurance at the Code of Corporate Governance workshop in Kano, yesterday.
“The Code of Corporate Governance is set up to address the concerns of massive interconnection indebtedness and the unethical practice of masking of international calls in the telecom industry,” he said.
While warning operators to desist from call masking activities or face the consequences of their actions, Durojaiye stated that NCC is currently rejigging its regulatory oversights to ensure consumers get value for money spent on telecommunications services.
He believes that good corporate governance was the best form of self-regulation and that licensees of the commission were encouraged to consider it in their own best interest so as to imbibe and implement the principles enshrined in the code.
