Ahead of the 2020 Information Communication Technology and Telecommunications (ICTEL) Expo, the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), is seeking the partnership of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).
According to LCCI, the partnership, when granted will aid the successful hosting of this year’s edition. Speaking, while leading a delegation of the Chamber to the Commission on a courtesy visit, Leye Kupoluyi, LCCI Vice President, noted that NCC has played its role in driving further growth of Information and Communications Technology (ICT).
“We commend NCC for its unflinching commitment to providing universal access in the country, and for its consistency in supporting successful hosting of previous ICTEL Expos,” he said.
The delegation led by Kupoluyi was received at the Communications and Digital Economy Complex Building, Mbora, Abuja at the weekend. Ismail Adedigba, Acting Head of Consumer Affairs Bureau (CAB) at NCC, received the LCCI team on behalf of Prof. Umar Danbatta, NCC’s Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Executive.
Adedigba reaffirmed NCC’s commitment to partnership and collaboration because strategic collaboration is the fifth item on the 8-Point Agenda of the Commission. He also said the Commission is always ready and willing to promote a win-win partnership and collaboration with relevant stakeholders towards advancing the frontiers of the ICT industry as an enabler to the economic growth and development of Nigeria.
Adedigba, however, told the LCCI team that its request with respect to the Commission’s participation and support for the upcoming 6th edition of the ICTEL Expo, would be conveyed to NCC Management for consideration.
