The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero has commended the leadership qualities displayed by the current board of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).
The monarch, who received the Board of Commissioners of NCC, led by its Chairman, Prof Adeolu Akande, argued that the successes recorded in the nation’s telecom industry couldn’t have been possible if not for the leadership traints exhibited by the regulatory body.
“Indeed, the NCC has been playing a pivotal role in regulating and developing the telecommunications sector in the country, and this fact is well established and cannot be overemphasized. I, therefore, commend the leadership and pray for more successes for the Commission,” he noted.
The Emir, who wished the Board of the Commission a fruitful deliberation during its retreat in the ancient city, however, charged the members to come up with resolutions that would have profound impacts on Nigerian people.
Earlier, Danbatta told the Emir that the board chose Kano again for its retreat because of the unmatched hospitality it received from the state during its previous retreat last year.
He said the board found it necessary to pay the courtesy visit to the monarch and seek his blessing before the commencement of the retreat.
“We had this retreat last year here in Kano and decided to come again. But as it’s the tradition, we cannot come to Kano without coming here to seek your permission and blessing in order to start the retreat. Your Highness, we feel we must come here and show respect because we hold this institution in highest esteem,” he pointed out.
Members of the board, who accompanied the Chairman and the EVC to the palace were: the Executive Commissioner, Technical Services, Engr. Ubale Maska; the Executive Commissioner, Stakeholder Management, Barr. Adeleke Adewolu, and Mr. Clement Baiye.
Others are: Prof. Millionaire Abowei, Mr. Aliyu Abubakar, Mr. Salman Muhammed and Chief Uche Onwude.
