Prof. Umar Danbatta: reappointed as Executive Vice Chairman of NCC

By Jessica Dogo

The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, said President Muhammadu Buhari has approved reappointment of Prof. Umar Danbatta as Executive Vice Chairman (EVC), Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC).

Pantami said the President’s decision was to consolidate the gains made in the telecommunications sector in line with the National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy of the country.

He said Danbatta’s reappointment was also based on his recommendation in line with the Nigerian Communications Act, 2003.

Pantami made the disclosure in a statement signed by Mrs Uwa Suleiman, spokesperson for the ministry, on Friday in Abuja.

The minister, therefore, congratulated Danbatta and directed him to significantly improve on the overall performance of the commission.

He also asked him to ensure adequate mechanisms were in place to facilitate implementation of all policies of Federal Government through the ministry.

He enjoined him to ensure that the interests of telecommunication consumers, Nigerians and investors were adequately protected.
