We can’t achieve our mandate without strengthening collaboration with Varsities – NCC

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has said it cannot achieve its regulatory mandate without strengthen­ing collaboration with univer­sities in the country.

Prof. Adeolu Akande, Chair­man, Board of Commissioners of NCC, stated this during a courtesy visit by NCC Board members to Bayero University, Kano (BUK) at the weekend as part of activities lined up for the 2020 NCC Board retreat held in Kano State.

Akande pledged to increase collaboration with higher in­stitutions of learning across the country in order to trans­form Nigeria into a full knowl­edge-based economy.

Akande, who praised the university for producing Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta, the Executive Vice Chairman of the Commission, said the NCC superintends a sector that is knowledge-driven and therefore, would not be able to achieve its mandate without strengthening collaboration with citadels of knowledge like BUK and other higher institu­tions of learning to produce the knowledge base needed to support the growth of the tele­coms sector.
