The Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) has commenced sensitization programme for residents of Gwagwalada area council on the impact on Quality Of Service (QOS) and electronic waste.
Speaking during a sensitization programme yesterday, the head of zonal operations of NCC, Mrs. Helen Obi, explained that the workshop would help in checking the proliferation of substandard and counterfeit mobile phones.
Obi, who spoke on the topic, “Hazardous Effect on Non-type Approved Handsets and its Impact on Quality of Service (QOS)”, added that the commission intends to educate Nigerians on the importance of using approved equipment, including handsets and by implication, the hazardous effect of using non-type approved equipment.
“We are here to better educate the people of Gwagwalada and its environs on the importance of using type approved equipment, including handsets and by implication, the hazardous effect of using non-type approved equipment. It is indeed a clear demonstration of our collective commitment to ensure that the Nigeria telecoms industry continues to grow and blossom.”
She stated that the NCC, which is an independent regulatory body for the telecoms industry in Nigeria, is committed to ensuring that the consumer enjoys his or her stake in the telecommunications industry, just as she also urged Nigerians to strictly patronize equipment that are type approved by the commission.
“The commission intends to ensure that all equipment purchased for the purpose of carrying out telecommunication services in the country is satisfactorily utilized and the user gets value for his/her money,”she added.
