The Civil Society Groups for Good Governance , a coalition of over 180 Civil Society Organisations, has commended the Management of the Nigerian Communications Commission , NCC for driving various regulatory initiatives for the development of digital economy.
The president of the group, Comrade Ogakwu Dominic, gave the commendation during a visit to the Commission in Abuja recently to present an award and appreciation letter to the Executive Vice Chairman, EVC of NCC, Professor Umar Danbatta.
The NCC boss introduced eccentric policies and initiatives that have turnaround the country’s digital economy.
According to Dominic, the certificate of performance presented to the EVC was in recognition of his efforts in driving regulatory initiatives under his supervision and more importantly, to appreciate NCC’s support for the successful hosting of a recently-concluded ‘RoundTable on Digital economy’.
“The EVC has demonstrated high level of patriotism, commitment and statesmanship and as such, the Certificate of Performance (CoP) we are presenting today is to commend you for your renowned track record as a leader with great passion focused on effective growth and advancement of the Nigerian economy as the basis for enhanced national development,” Dominic said.
Receiving the delegation on behalf of the Professor Danbatta, the Assistant Director, Digital Economy, NCC, Uket Bassey, appreciated the award and certificate presented to the NCC boss.
He said it was symbolic of the fact that, an important organisation like the Civil Society Groups for Good Governance appreciate the good work the Commission has been doing to create digital access for all and sundry.
Bassey said, as the telecom regulator, the Commission aims to support and partner with all relevant stakeholders and Nigerians at large.
This, according to him, will ensure that the growth of the country’s socio-economic system is sustained through promotion of universal access and service to all Nigerians, regardless of their circumstances.
