The Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Prof. Umar Danbatta has redeployed the Director of Public Affairs, Dr. Henry Nkemadu and three others  in what can be considered a a major restructuring at its senior management cadre.

Other Directors redeployed, according to Thisday Newspaper are Director, Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Department, Mr. Efosa Idehen; Director, Consumer Affairs Bureau, Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, and Director, Research and Development (R and D) Department, Mr. Ephraim Nwokonneya.

Though no official statement has been issued by NCC, Thisday Newspaper reports that the shake-up may not be unconnected with the renewed commitment of Danbatta, to inject new ideas and energy into some aspects of the organisation’s regulatory activities, following his reappointment by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The redeployment takes effect immediately with Idehen assuming new position as Director, Consumer Affairs Bureau, Nwokonneya is the Director, Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Department, while Adinde will henceforth pilot the Public Affairs department, replacing Nkemadu who has been redeployed to the Research and Development department of the commission.
