The new minister wants the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) to end the sale of pre-registered, unregistered and partially-registered SIM cards; stem the tide of illegal deduction of the data of subscribers and work towards the downward review of the cost of data; and ensure compliance with the maximum 2% Call Drop Rate directive to telecom operators.
The NCC is not the only establishment that got the marching order from the new minister Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami. He has also set targets for the CEOs of other parastatals under the federal ministry of communications.
For Galaxy Backbone, he asked the establishment to improve the reach and coverage of its services in the public sector; and to significantly improve the quality of services provided.
He asked the Nigerian Communications Satellite (NIGCOMSAT) Limited to significantly improve its level of visibility across the country; and to ensure great improvement in the quality of its services.
For the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), the minister wants a greater level of focus on increasing local content development and patronage in the hardware and software sub-sectors; and to strengthen the execution of its IT project clearance mandate to capture more projects by the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs); and to ensure the promotion and adoption of the Nigeria e-Government Interoperability Framework (Ne-GIF) by the MDAs.
“Pantami emphasized the Ministry’s roles of supervision and provision of broad policies for all the parastatals within the Ministry. He informed the CEOs that their performance would be assessed on a monthly basis. He asked them to be passionate, hardworking and ensure that they exhibit high level of integrity in the discharge of their duties. He urged them to follow due process in their activities as championed by the President and also directed them to communicate these values and targets to their staff,” the ministry stated.
