23 Jul 2015

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) says it has begun the process of developing new regulatory guidelines for the country’s telecoms sector, reports local newspaper Vanguard. The NCC’s executive vice chairman Eugene Juwah is quoted as saying that the exercise forms part of its rule-making process aimed at ensuring wide consultation in the development of a regulatory framework in accordance with the Nigerian Communications Act. When finalised, the updated regulations will provide a more robust framework for carrying out enforcement in the industry, providing guiding standards and principles for enforcement processes and SIM replacement.
