The newspaper reported, “The FCCPC emerged as the clear leader in the poll, achieving the highest approval rate.
The strong support it received reflects the agency’s unwavering commitment to safeguarding consumer rights and promoting fair competition within Nigeria’s evolving marketplace.
The FCCPC’s focus on addressing anticompetitive practices and protecting consumers has clearly resonated with the majority of respondents.
“Evaluating the performance of Federal Government Agencies is crucial for understanding their impact on citizens’ lives and the nation’s overall functioning,” it said.
“These insights can serve as a basis for informed discussions, strategic improvements, and accountability mechanisms to ensure these agencies effectively serve the interests of the Nigerian populace.
“The methodology of the poll aimed for broad-based participation and diverse viewpoints. Conducted over a predefined period, the poll garnered responses from a total of 3,601 participants, including 1,801 from LinkedIn and 1,001 from The Bureau Newspaper’s website.”
