The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has increased the Emergency Communications Centres (ECCs) to 25 and deployed Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) solutions to all the ECCs across the country.

NCC’s spokesman, Dr Ikechukwu Adinde, in a statement, said the bolstering of the capacity of emergency response agencies was coming on the heels of the commission’s recent activation of the Taraba State ECC, thus bringing the total number of operational ECCs across the country to 25.

“The Taraba ECC joins the existing operational ECCs in 23 states of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory.

“These ECCs are located in the FCT, Adamawa, Imo, Enugu, Ondo, Oyo, Kwara, Plateau, Ogun, Kano, Katsina, Ekiti, Cross River and Edo. Others are Kaduna, Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Benue, Kogi, Bauchi, Osun, Zamfara, Kebbi and Gombe States.

Executive Vice Chairman, NCC, Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta, said the commission would continue to modernize the ECCs from time to time to keep it effective and respond appropriately to the dynamics of emergency cases, in keeping with its objective of enhancing security of lives and property in the country.
