The Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (EVC/CEO) of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Prof. Umar Danbatta, has emphasised the commitment of the commission to continually drive initiatives that accelerate deployment of digital infrastructure, in order to enhance economic transformation of Nigeria. 

Danbatta reiterated the commitment of the commission while speaking at the NCC Day, at the recently-concluded 43rd Kaduna International Trade Fair, organised by the Kaduna Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (KADCCIMA).

Speaking on the overarching theme of the event ‘Strategising Nigerian Economy for Global Competitiveness,’ in the context of the regulatory activities of the commission, the EVC, who was represented by a senior manager at the commission, Attah Ogbadu, said it has been at the heart of providing the digital impetus for transforming businesses and sustaining socio-economic activities in Nigeria.

Danbatta stated that due to the COVID-19-induced economic downturn and continued volatility, many countries are exploring policies to stimulate growth and create new jobs. 

“Information Communications Technology (ICT) is one of the fastest-growing industries because it triggers the creation of millions of jobs and therefore an enabler of innovation and socio-economic development,” Danbatta stated.

The EVC also asserted that while COVID-19 pandemic came with its attendant challenges, the commission has continued to work assiduously with various stakeholders to see how more businesses can embrace digital platforms for delivering their services to consumers.
