Smart City: NCC, Edo State To Partner On Telecom Connectivity, Access

Published

on


The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is set to partner the Edo State government to in ensure improved access to telecoms infrastructure and provide citizens of Edo State with world class telecoms and ICT facilities. This commitment was made during a meeting between the Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki and the NCC, led by the Commission’s Executive Commissioner for Stakeholder Management, Mr Sunday Dare.

In his welcome remarks at the meeting, which was held at the NCC headquarters on Wednesday, Dare commended the forward-looking policies of the Governor and assured him of the NCC’s readiness to support the achievement of the ICT aspirations of the State through the deployment of fiber infrastructure under the Commission’s InfraCo project and interventions by the Universal Service Provision Fund.

He noted that the NCC is aggressively driving accessibility to telecoms networks at all nooks and crannies of the Federation. He however regretted that situation with multiple taxation and regulation in some States of the Federation is counter-productive for the States – this is because they end up losing substantial revenues and developmental opportunities which could have been stimulated with the presence of telecoms infrastructure. In his remarks, the Governor noted that the Edo State Government is focused on exploring non-oil resources.
