The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), will by 10.00 a.m., tomorrow Tuesday 23rd June 2020, launch a 5-year Strategic Management Plan (SMP), which will help in creating a seamless strategy to augment its effective management and regulation of the Nigerian telecommunications sector.
The telecom regulator revealed this in a statement signed by its Director of Public Affairs, Dr. Henry Nkemadu.
According to the statement, the SMP will leverage the National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy (NDEPS) as well as the new National Broadband Plan (NBP) 2020 2025 Roadmaps. Also, it will cover the guiding principles and act as the operations manual for the Commission towards actualising the digital economy agenda of the Federal Government in the next five years.
“Essentially, the SMP, which was developed in-house with the stamp of the Management and Board, is a visioning document of the Commission for planning, monitoring, analysing and assessment of the Commission’s goals and objectives in the next five years. It will be resident in the Corporate Planning, Strategy and Risk Management Department, which will ensure that the contents of the document become the guiding principles for the Commission in the next five years,” part of the statement reads.
The NCC Strategic Management Plan (SMP) 2020-2024, will be launched by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami, and will be supported by the Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the NCC, Professor Adeolu Akande and the Executive Vice Chairman/Chief Executive, Professor Umar Garba Danbatta. All members of the Board of Commissioners of NCC will also be in attendance.
Meanwhile, invitations have been extended to all the Heads of Parastatals under the Ministry and all Stakeholders to virtually witness the once-in-five-years launch that is expected to move the sector to the next level, especially now that the stakes are getting higher in terms of services provided and the quality expected by the consumers.
