He said, “The NCC’s continuous, active participation and consistent involvements in the global and regional activities buttress our unrelenting commitment to building a regulatory environment that is comparable to any regulatory institution anywhere in the world.”
The NCC boss had told the visitors that the astronomical growth in Nigeria tele-density and subscriber base contributing to increase in direct and indirect employment opportunities had been achieved through ensuring a level playing field, transparent and participatory regulations and extensive stakeholders’ consultative process.
