Judging from talks with the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF), multiple reguations, taxes and right of way could very well be a thing of the past, according to various media reports.
NCC boss promises to end multiple regulations, taxes
Danbatta made this known when he received the management team of ATC Wireless Infrastructure Company of Nigeria in Abuja.
Media sources say the newly appointed executive vice chairman (EVC) of the Nigerian Communcations Commission (NCC), Prof. Umar Danbatta, made this known while stating that he has also engaged other agencies of government in talks with the aim to improving the relationship between telcos – who are often victims of these taxes and multiple regulations – and the government.
Nigeria CommunicationWeek reports that Danbatta made this known when he received the management team of ATC Wireless Infrastructure Company of Nigeria in Abuja.
“The NCC is particularly worried about the indiscriminate way base transceiver stations are sealed by agencies and some State governments and we have appealed to these agencies and the State Governors to show some understanding. We are particularly in talks with them to understand the implications of these actions as they affect quality of service and other sundry matters, including power supply,” Danbatta said.
The NCC boss received the visitors along with the Director, Public Affairs, NCC, Mr. Tony Ojobo, and Chief of Staff to the EVC, Mr. Usman Malah.
