The Coalition of Civil Society under the aegis of Civil Society Group for Good Governance (CSGGG), has commended the Management of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) for championing regulatory initiatives responsible for the country’s digital economy development.
The commendation came during the group’s visit the headquarters of the commission in Abuja recently.
The president of the group, Comrade Ogakwu Dominic, also presented an award and appreciation letter to the EVC.
According to Dominic, the certificate of performance presented to the EVC was in recognition of his efforts in driving regulatory initiatives while also appreciating the Commission’s support for the successful hosting of a recently-concluded ‘RoundTable on Digital economy’.
“The EVC has demonstrated high level of patriotism, commitment and statesmanship and as such, the Certificate of Performance (CoP) we are presenting today is to commend you for your renowned track record as a leader with great passion focused on effective growth and advancement of the Nigerian economy as the basis for enhanced national development,” Dominic said.
Receiving the delegation on behalf of the EVC, the Assistant Director, Digital Economy, NCC, Uket Bassey, appreciated the award and certificate presented to the NCC boss.
Bassey said the award is symbolic of the fact that, an important organisation like the Civil Society Groups for Good Governance appreciate the good work the Commission has been doing to create digital access for all and sundry.
He also said the Commission resolve to support and partner with relevant stakeholders will engender the growth of the country’s socio-economic system through promotion of universal access and service to all Nigerians, regardless of their circumstances.
