The Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta has said all telecom stakeholders need to go back to the drawing board in order to inspire confidence in consumers to patronize the communications services.

Danbatta revealed this  at the 88th Edition of Telecom Consumer Parliament in Abuja recently.

He affirmed that because if Nigerians do not subscribe to telecommunications services, the services will die and millions of Nigerians will lose their jobs, the revenue the telecom Industry generates to GDP will not be there and that is a recipe for disaster.

 With respect to cyber security, the EVC said the Commission would continue to ensure dialogue and active participation where we can harness additional ideas and implementation in order to protect ourselves.

He added that  the Commission in line with its mandate will continue to collaborate with the industry’s stakeholders especially on the issue of cyber crime.

The TCP resolved that service providers should have a unified database for Sim cards in collaboration with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to reduce the number of Sim card fraudsters. It was also agreed that cyber crime offenders instead of just being jailed, should be put in facilities where their skills can be deployed for development of Technology as opposed to just being incarcerated.
