The Nigerian Communications Commission is about to make a comeback on television with a newly developed 30-minute weekly program that will examine the Nigerian telecommunications and information communications technology (ICT) industry on a regular basis and raise awareness among telecom users throughout the nation and abroad.
According to the Commission, on Tuesday, January 10, 2023, at 5:00 pm, the weekly program, appropriately titled Telecom Weekly, will make its premiere on NTA Network Services, which consists of more than 45 stations across the 36 States and Abuja. Every Tuesday at 5:00 PM, all nearby NTA stations are scheduled to connect to the program.
According to the statement, all local FRCN stations are expected to connect during the weekly show, which airs on radio every Thursday at 8 p.m. on the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) Network for simultaneous delivery to all States of the Federation.
According to a statement by Reuben Morka, the Commission’s Spokesman, the show is anticipated to increase the Commission’s voice on radio and television in an effort to give stakeholders timely information about developments and concerns in the telecoms business.
It went on to say that one of the main goals of the program would be to continuously raise awareness among various stakeholders about the activities and programs of the Commission as it strives to achieve regulatory excellence, in addition to making issues related to telecommunications services simpler for the average consumer.
In order to give a cross-section of telecommunications service users the opportunity to learn from these experiences and apply them in the use of their services, NCC indicated that user experiences collected through consumer-related events and vox pop will be utilized to spice the program.
In order to aid in the process of raising knowledge of the business, it was further stated that expert perspectives will also be prominently featured. Quiz shows with rewards for viewers and listeners will also be a regular part of the program.
