DAAR Communications Plc, has recognized the Executive Vice Chairman, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Prof. Umar Danbatta, for his outstanding leadership in the Public Sector Governance.
The second edition of DAAR Awards ceremony which was held in Abuja had in attendance many industry captains and stakeholders.
Speaking while receiving the award, Danbatta said he wouldn’t have made so much impact without the support and dedication of the NCC staff.
“I dedicate this award to them, as well as telecom consumers, whom I worked day and night to empower.”
The NCC boss who was represented by the Commission’s Head of Public Relations, Reuben Muoka, expressed appreciation to DAAR for the recognition and award, saying it would spur him to do more, achieve greater feat for the Nigerian telecom consumers.
“The EVC is very grateful to DAAR Communications and considers them a partner in the transformation of Nigeria’s telecommunications industry.
DAAR communications has been there and has contributed immensely to what we’re celebrating. But today on a different note, DAAR Communications is recognizing the EVC for what he has done. “Last year the EVC initiated and we launched 2017 Year of the Telecom Consumer.
This campaign to empower and educate consumers across board to take advantage of all the solutions that abound in the industry must be one of the reasons he’s been given this award.
But you remember also that ‘Year of the Nigerian Consumer’ is just one item of the 8-point agenda that Prof. Danbatta had initiated to motive and push the industry to greater heights and the results are there for everyone to see,” Muoka.
Continuing, he said he had been mandated to dedicate the award to the NCC staff and most importantly to the Nigerian telecom consumers “for whom he is working day and night to ensure that they are emancipated, educated, empowered to enjoy the services that every Nigerian cherishes.”
