A future-ready organizations are built to adapt to any situation and thrive; they are built on standardization, digital innovation, agility, resilience, and partnerships to develop solutions that anticipate market and consumer needs.

“Anything we are doing at NCC, we approach it from the global standards. What thing that has distinguished NCC; it is an institution built on a tradition of professionalism. Once you are a staff of NCC, you will imbibe that culture.

NCC has been the beautiful bride of the public sector. Professor Umar Danbattam, the Executive Vice the NCC has been recognized as the special ambassador by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), and of course the Vanguard Newspaper 2022 Personality of the Year.

Reflecting on what these imply for the Commission and the EVC in particular, Mr. Mouka said, “Our EVC has a five-point agenda. One of the key points there is to facilitate collaborations and partnerships. If you look at that, you will discover that we are very collaborative with the industry; it is an industry that you need to predict the future to booster investors’ confidence. The investors need to be assured that you align with all the areas that are adding value in the eco-system.

“If you see from that light of partnership then, you will appreciate the various organisations whose activities or roles, in one way or the others, is influenced or impacted by ICT and telecommunications services, overall. From performance point of view, it is observable that Professor Danbatta has done great in discharging his responsibilities in leading the organization into the future.

We also have an office focused on the promotion of indigenous technology and skills development which is critical to the entire gamut of digital economy.
