The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is set to unveil what it has tagged a five year Strategic Vision Plan (SVP) 2021-2025, which will enable cross-functional infrastructure, ubiquitous services and deepen consumer engagement to consolidate the growth of the telecoms sector and expand the possibilities of the digital economy.
Disclosing this in a statement, Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, Director of Public Affairs noted that the need to develop another SVP, as a five-year implementation roadmap for the Commission, followed the expiration, in 2020, of the first SVP unveiled by Danbatta in 2016.
“It has been widely acknowledged that the diligent execution of the first SVP initiative, under Danbatta, has helped to consistently lift broadband penetration, increase telephone access, boost the sector’s contribution to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), enhance healthy competition in the industry, improve quality of service (QoS), as well as put the sector’s overall investment profile on an impressive growth trajectory,” the statement said.
Meanwhile, the Commission’s new social media channel, the NCC’s Global Connect Podcast is also set for unveiling on September 7, 2021, by 10:00 a.m. prompt.
According to the Commission, the ‘NCC Global Connect,” podcast will help in enhancing the Commission’s corporate communication activities within the online space. The podcast initiative was conceived in keeping with NCC’s core values of innovation and excellence;. It adds to the existing media channels, providing an inclusive medium to broaden its media platforms to educate external stakeholders on its regulatory activities irrespective of their circumstances, through audio content.
