Isa Pantami, minister of communications and digital economy, has launched the strategic vision (implementation) plan (SVP) 2021-2025 of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).
Speaking at the launch ceremony on Tuesday in Abuja, Pantami said the main function of the communications ministry was to provide an enabling environment for the private sector to thrive.
He explained that it was necessary for the private sector to be more successful because they control majority of the economy.
“Strategic vision is key to the foundation of whatever we do. Usually, strategy cascades our national policy for implementation,” Pantami said.
“This strategy of NCC has cascaded the two national policies that are relevant to it, most importantly, the national digital economic policy and strategy for a digital Nigeria and Nigerian national broadband plan. This is what the strategy is all about
Pantami also unveiled a compendium of the NCC EVC’s speeches and presentations titled, ‘Catalysing Nigeria’s Socio-Economic Transformation through Broadband Infrastructure’, as well as the ‘NCC Global Connect’ podcast channel.
Speaking on the SVP, Umar Danbatta, executive vice chairman and chief executive officer (EVC/CEO) of NCC, said the need to re-invigorate the commission and take it to the greater heights informed the development of the new SVP.
