The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) revealed that Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has been instrumental to its successful hosting of Information Communication Technology and Telecommunications (ICTEL) Expo for the past half decade and that the apex industry regulator is a reliable partner in progress.

LCCI Vice President, Leye Kupoluyi said this when he led a delegation of the Chamber to the Commission on a courtesy visit to Abuja at the weekend, adding that the theme of the 2020 Expo is so directly connected to the activities of NCC.

“Over the years, NCC has been supportive and remained a partner for progress to LCCI, and the successes so far recorded in the past five editions of ICTEL Expo would not have been possible without the support of NCC,” he said.

Ismail Adedigba, Acting Head of Consumer Affairs Bureau (CAB) at NCC, received Kupoluyi and his LCCI team on behalf of Prof. Umar Danbatta, NCC’s Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Executive.

Kupoluyi commended the Commission for its role in driving further growth of Information and Communications Technology (ICT); and for its unflinching commitment to providing universal access in the country, also lauded NCC  for its consistency in supporting successful hosting of previous ICTEL Expos.

Kupoluyi said LCCI’s objective for the visit was to deliberate with the Management of the Commission on its upcoming 6th edition of the ICTEL Expo holding later this year with the theme: “Exploring Opportunities in Digital Economy.”

Kupoluyi stated that the theme of the expo is so directly connected to the activities of NCC as the regulatory authority for telecommunications in Nigeria. “Over the years, NCC has been supportive and remained a partner for progress to LCCI, and the successes so far recorded in the past five editions of ICTEL Expo would not have been possible without the support of NCC,” he said.

Kupoluyi further underscored the desirability of having NCC as an event partner at the 2020 edition of the expo by emphasising that in today’s world, ICT/telecommunications has become an enabler for businesses, improved health care delivery, and e-agriculture among others.

“Hence, the participation of the NCC will further underscore the significance of the theme of the event and enhance the dialogue on how we can jointly explore opportunities in digital economy to the benefits of our organisations,  members of LCCI and the country in general,” he said.
