The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) says it is committed to achieving the 30% approved National Broadband Implementation Plan by 2018.

Prof. Umar Danbatta, Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, said this at the Nigeria Digital Innovation Conference in Ibadan. The conference was sponsored by Centre for Cyber Awareness and Development (CECAD) in conjunction with Federal Ministry of Communication and NCC with the theme of the conference being “Building a New Nigeria in Digital Economy: Policy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship’’

Danbatta said that the plan was part of the 8-point agenda conceptualised for comprehensive national economic growth. He said that Nigeria’s broadband penetration was empirically adjudged by the global telecom regulator, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), as 21% in 2017.

“We have witnessed the success of online shopping malls, online banking and other transactions in a way that it is being experienced in far more developed countries. We are supporting ICT innovations in our institutions of higher learning and among several youth organisations across the country’’.

The Executive Vice Chairman said that the NCC would not relent in its effort at promoting investment opportunities and selling the country’s investment potential to the international telecom community. He went further to add that the toll-free 622 secondary consumer complaints initiative had been upgraded, adding that the success rate of resolution of consumer complaints on the platform had reached 75%.
