NCC puts consumers first in regulatory activities – Danbatta


UMAR Danbatta, executive vice chairman, Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, has restated the commission’s commitment to consumer-related issues in its regulatory activities. He said the commission would warmly receive useful feedbacks that may enhance effective regulation.

Danbatta stated this when he received a delegation of the National Association of Telecoms Subscribers, NATCOMS, which paid a courtesy visit to the management of the commission in Abuja. He reiterated that regulatory activities of the commission over the years have proved that “we remain a consumer-centric organisation as we ensure that consumer protection occupies a very important position in the scheme of our regulatory activities, but we also welcome useful feedbacks from stakeholders like NATCOMS towards advancing the course of consumer protection.”

Danbatta said that the commission consistently monitors operators’ compliance with its directives with regard to data rollover, and the stringent nature of managing SIM swap requirements. He said the commission was committed to encouraging more Foreign Direct Investment, FDI, in the sector by encouraging local manufacturing of mobile phones and some basic accessories.

The delegation was led by Deolu Ogunbanjo, national president, NATCOMS, who told the management of the NCC that NATCOMS was visiting to commend the commission for its consumer-centric regulatory approach.

He explained that NATCOMS came to the commission to raise a number of issues that are of concern to the association.
