“It is an honour that will spur us on to work hard in order to deliver on the mandate assigned to us by the Act establishing NCC and this act has empowered us to ensure access to communications services, access that is efficient, qualitative, as well as to ensure competition in the Nigerian space.”

Danbatta added that “we at NCC are going to put more effort, to deliver on this mandate to Nigerians.”
Furthermore, the ECV said over the past three years since taking over the helms of affairs of NCC, “we have succeeded in establishing our relevance as academics, then this honour would be seen as a testimony of our relevance not just within the University system but also within the Nigerian Communication space. I think it is important to recognize that there is a lot of talents resident within the Nigerian university system. Government has deemed it appropriate to tap these talents and bring to bear in driving the economy in the various sectors.”

“And I think this is a clear message that is coming out from the performance we have rendered over the three years, there is still a lot of talented men and women within the Nigerian University system.”
