By Ibiyemi Mathew

The Nigerian Communications Commission has invited stakeholders in the telecommunications industry to deliberate on three new regulations it seeks to implement.

In a press statement issued by Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, the agency’s Director of Public Affairs, he said the public inquiry from stakeholders will be held virtually.

According to the statement, “interested stakeholders are invited to make written submissions on the subject and participate in the Public Inquiries. Details of the virtual meeting will be forwarded to interested attendees prior to the Public Inquiries.

“All submissions must reach the Commission on or before Friday, September 24, 2021 and should be addressed to: The Executive Vice Chairman, Nigerian Communications Commission, Plot 423, Aguiyi Ironsi Street, Maitama, Abuja. ATTN: Director, Legal and Regulatory Services,” the statement read.

This exercise is on line with the powers conferred on the agency by the Nigerian Communications Act 2003 which empowers the regulator to hold a stakeholders input on new regulations in the industry.

It is expected that fruitful deliberations that will positively affect the telecommunications industry in Nigeria will be done.
