The new Strategic Vision (Implementation) Plan (SVP) 2021-2025, launched by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has five items that will be implemented in the five years period, the Executive Vice Chairman of the Commission, Prof. Umar Danbatta has announced.
The five items, according to Prof. Danbatta are organizational renewal for operational efficiency and regulatory excellence; facilitating the provision of infrastructure for a digital economy that fosters national development and promoting fair competition, inclusive growth, increased investment and innovative services.
others are improving quality of service (qos) for enhanced consumer quality of experience (qoe), and facilitating strategic collaboration and partnership.
Highlighting these five items yesterday in Abuja at the launch of the plan, the NCC Boss noted that to ensure a strong commitment to its implementation, the new SVP also has inbuilt initiatives, key performance indicators developed from inception and activities tied to an implementation responsibility matrix.
“The new SVP incorporates timelines and a robust monitoring and evaluation mechanism. It is equally outcome-based and recommendation-driven with follow-up actions to guide the Commission in operationalising the plan and assessing its performance over time,” he said.
According to Prof. Danbatta, the new SVP, no doubt, embodies several innovative elements deliberately designed to re-invent and transform the telecom ecosystem within the context of regulation. This takes me to the next innovative project, the Compendium of EVC’s Speeches and Presentations.
The new Strategic Vision Plan 2021-2025 is a successor to the SVP (2015-2020). The plan takes cognizance of the several notable advancements in the Nigerian telecommunications industry within the last five (5) years, as well as the current global realities such as the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Strategic Plan (2020 – 2023), the Commission’s Strategic Management Plan (SMP) 2020-2024, the National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy (NDEPS) 2020-2030 for a digital Nigeria, the Nigerian National Broadband Plan (NNBP) 2020-2025 and the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) of the Federal Government.
The new plan has been guided by and aligned to the NNBP (2020-2025), the NDEPS (2020-2030), the SMP (2020-2024), the ITU Strategic Plan and the ERGP of the Federal Government.
