Nigerian watchdog unveils 5-year telecoms management plan
ABUJA: The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has unveiled a strategic management plan (SMP) to cover the period from 2013 to 2017. This followed more than twelve months of industry consultations in a process managed by PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC). NCC Executive Vice Chairman Eugene Juwah said the formal unveiling of the new SMP will serve as a roadmap for the future. He said it took into consideration the current and emerging trends in the industry and the numerous expectations of the diverse stakeholders.
He said the SMP is a living document which must be consulted regularly to ensure that the NCC is on track towards achieving the objectives which have been collectively articulated. The commission also announced a retuning of its mission, which it now says is to support a market-driven communications industry, promote universal access and to be a responsive world-class communications regulatory organisation.
