The Nigerian telecom regulator is set to launch a compendium of landmark speeches and presentations of the Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Prof. Umar Danbatta.
Titled: “Catalysing Nigeria’s Socio-Economic Transformation through Broadband Infrastructure,” the historic launch of the book is scheduled to hold at the Communications & Digital Economy Complex, Mbora, Abuja, on September 7, 2021, by 10:00 a.m. prompt.
The book is a compilation of carefully selected, seminal speeches and presentations of Prof. Danbatta, touching on all strategic areas of the nation’s telecoms industry development and the entire digital economy ecosystem, since his assumption of office as the EVC/CEO of NCC in August 2015.
Danbatta, a Professor of telecommunications engineering, accomplished academic and seasoned administrator has made extensive speeches and presentations on a wide range of subjects in telecoms and ICT at important national, regional and international events since leaving the ivory tower to become the EVC of NCC in 2015.
His landmark speeches and presentations from 2015 till date have, thus, been codified in a concise collection, as a compendium, providing useful information that will significantly add value to the existing body of knowledge in the telecoms sector, and by extension, the entire Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry.
The foreword to the book has been painstakingly written by the late former Chairman, Board of Commissioners of NCC, Alh. Ahmed Joda of blessed memory. The book will serve as useful reference material not only for existing and prospective investors in the sector but also for researchers in academia as well as policy analysts and others interested in any aspects of the telecom industry and regulation. The book which also chronicles important milestones attained by the Commission under Danbatta’s leadership is a compelling read.
The Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, will be the Special Guest of Honour at the occasion. Senior government officials, industry leaders and stakeholders as well as dignitaries from across the country are billed to attend the landmark event.
