NCC strategic partnership to move industry forward – Danbatta


The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) will continue to partner with governments at all levels and other stakeholders in its bid to move the telecom industry forward, Prof Umar Garba Danbatta, executive vice chairman of the Commission,  has said.

Speaking at an investment forum of Kaduna State Government, KADINVEST 2.0, Danbatta also noted that the symposium struck a chord with NCC’s strategic vision.

“I would like to congratulate Kaduna State people through his Excellency Governor Nasiru El-Rufai for organizing this timely and commendable forum,” he said.

The Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR) has just rated NCC top in the country in terms of institutional work processes.

Dr. Joe Abah, director general of BPSR, who presented a report and plaque to Danbatta recently in Abuja noted that robust business organizational structure, policies and practices that facilitate effective and efficient service delivery were some of the high points which informed the agency’s decision.

He listed accountabilities and responsibilities for set Standardized Operating Procedure (SOP) manuals of the Commission’s 19 departments.

Accurate measurement of Responsibilities and Performance assigned to staff were the parameters for the evaluation of the Commission.

In terms of governance, the Bureau said “NCC strategic objectives are prioritized for potential impact using standardized principles including the balanced score card”.
