NCC Calls For Credible Media Influence Ahead Of 2023 Elections

The Executive Vice Chairman [EVC] of the Nigerian Communications Commission [NCC] Prof Umar Danbatta explains that the media holds the ace in making a difference in promoting credible elections in Nigeria as the 2023 general Elections campaign accelerates at the 18th All-Nigeria Editors Conference, organized by the Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) in collaboration with the Imo State government in Owerri.

Danbatta states that the upcoming 5G spectrum auction and others are aimed at improving availability, accessibility, and affordability, adding that telecommunications infrastructure would enhance the credibility of the elections.

The Director of Public Affairs of NCC, Reuben Muoka, during the examination of the conference theme, “2023: Political Landscape, Credible Elections, and Role of Editors,” declares that responsive journalism is critical to sustainable democracy.

NCC earlier announced the plan to license additional lots in the 3.5 GHz spectrum band for the deployment of the new technology in the Global System of Mobile Communications (GSM) industry.

NCC is committed to the implementation of the Nigerian National Broadband Plan (2020-2025) and National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy (2020-2030) and others geared toward enhancing connectivity and social cohesion in the country.
