The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is expected to introduce a five years (2020-2024) Strategic Management Plan (SMP) with the objective of creating a cohesive strategy to increase its effective management and regulation of the telecom sector.
It will cover the guiding principles and act as the operations manual for the Commission towards actualising the digital economy agenda of the Federal Government in the next five years.
Essentially, the SMP which was developed in-house with the stamp of the Management and Board is a visioning document of the Commission for planning, monitoring, analyzing and assessment of the Commissions goals and objectives in the next five (5) years.
It will be resident in the Corporate Planning ,Strategy And Risk Management Department which will ensure that the contents of the document become the guiding principles for the Commission in the next five years. – NCC said.
The SMP will be launched by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Pantami, with the help of NCC Board Chairman Professor Adeolu Akande and NCC Executive Vice President Professor Umar Garba Danbatta.

“The Executive Vice Chairman/CEO of NCC, Prof.Umar Garba Danbatta has since extended invitations to all the Heads of Parastatals under the Ministry and all Stakeholders to virtually witness the once in five years launch that is expected to move the sector to the next level especially now that the stakes are getting higher in terms of services provided and the quality expected by the consumers,” NCC stated.
