Speaking when he led a delegation from the chamber on a courtesy visit to the NCC headquarters, he said “Nigeria is now a reference point in the chronicle of the 4th Industrial Revolution but needs to take up the challenge of re-storying the gains in the context that makes meaning by recalling how NCC shepherds the great impact of ICT and telecoms in all spheres of its life”.
He said since 2000, the NCC as the regulatory authority of telecommunications in the country had served diligently as the organiser and manager of the ICT revolution in Nigeria and had done a lot in that regard.

NCC’s director, consumer affairs bureau (CAB), Felicia Onwuegbuchulam who received the LCCI team on behalf of the executive vice chairman (EVC) and chief executive of the commission, Prof. Umar Danbatta affirmed NCC’s commitment to partnerships and collaborations with organisations.
She told Kupoluyi and his colleagues that their request for collaboration towards the success of the ICTEL 2019 Expo woulm be transmitted to the EVC, so Management could explore and leverage the opportunities for collaboration in keeping with the spirit of the 8-point agenda of the commission.
The head, consumer protection and advocacy at CAB, Banji Ojo, who gave the closing remarks thanked the LCCI team for the visit, the appreciation of NCC’s role in sustaining the gains of telecommunications, and for the faith in the capacity of the commission to continue to lead the sector aright.
He said NCC would always appreciate programmes that give opportunities for citizens to explore the derivable benefits of the digital economy.
