Nigeria’s Minister of Communications has on Wednesday inaugurated board for the Nigerian Communications Commission in Abuja.
Barristrer Adebayo Shittu told the board members that during this national assignment, they should selflessly contribute their rich experiences to shape the development of the industry.
Members of the board include Senator Olabiyi Durojaiye (chairman), Prof. Umar Danbatta, executive vice chairman/chief executive; Engr. Ubale Maska, executive commissioner (Technical Services), Mr. Sunday Dare (executive commissioner, Stakeholder Management). The non-executive Commissioners include Mr. Clement Omeiza Baiye and Senator Ifeanyi Ararume.
Shittu charged the new board to employ cutting-edge regulatory practices to curtail the incidences of dropped calls and other related poor quality of service in the telecom sector. He urged them to ensure that Nigerians get value for their money in all the services rendered by the telecom service providers.
“Attention must shift to other critical sectors that can re-galvanize our economy. Consequently, leveraging on telecommunications and information technology is now obligatory”, he said.
