NCC launches Strategic Vision Plan 2021-2025, podcast, unveils ‘Compendium of EVC’s Speeches’




Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, on Tuesday launched a new Strategic Vision (Implementation) Plan (SVP) 2021-2025 which will define its strategic thrusts for the next five years.

The Commission also officially unveiled a book, ‘Compendium of EVC’s Speeches’, which is an official compendium that represents a collection of the EVC’s various speeches and presentations over the period of his first tenure in office.

The book is captioned, “Catalysing Nigeria’s Socio-Economic Transformation through Broadband Infrastructure” and underscores the centrality of broadband in Nigeria’s journey to a modern digital economy.

Danbatta spoke at the event held on Tuesday at the Communications and Digital Economy Complex, Mbora, Abuja which also saw the launch of the NCC Podcast, the NCC Global Connect.

“Since my assumption of office, we have focused on strategic objectives which are in tandem with the policy objectives of the Federal Government, under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari,” the EVC said.

“Our strategic objectives, the result of a careful assessment of some existing policy frameworks, offered us the opportunity to chart a course of action for the sector in a Strategic Vision (Implementation) Plan (SVP) 2015-2020, which items are as follows:

“Facilitate Broadband Penetration; Improve Quality of Service; Optimize Usage and Benefits of Spectrum; Promote ICT Investment and Innovation; Protect and Empower Consumers; Promote Fair Competition and Inclusive Growth; Facilitate Strategic Collaboration and Partnerships; and Ensure Regulatory Excellence and Operational Efficiency

“In developing the SVP (2015-2020), we had leveraged various policy documents, which included Nigeria’s National Broadband Plan (2013-2018) that had set a target of five-fold increase in broadband penetration, from 6% in 2013 to 30% penetration by the end of 2018. The NCC recorded a broadband penetration of 31.48% in December 2018.

“On NCC Global Connect, you can watch and listen to the most authoritative and current policy statements, regulations, guidelines, determinations and a host of other important policy pronouncements on the telecom sector by the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, and regulatory pronouncements from the Board and Management of the NCC as well as other industry leaders in this dynamic sector.

“So, like a book, our Podcast opens a new vista in our social media communication,” Danbatta said.

The NCC Podcast is portable, timeless, boundless, global and can be tuned in to it anywhere, any time. Dailypost
