The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is about to make a comeback on television with a newly packaged 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.
The weekly show, appropriately titled Telecom Weekly, should premiere, Tuesday, January 10, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. on NTA Network Services, which consists of more than 45 stations spread across the 36 states and Abuja.
Every Tuesday at 5:00 PM, all nearby NTA stations are scheduled to connect to the program. The radio version of the program will also air on Thursdays at 8 p.m. on the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) Network, with all local FRCN stations expected to connect during the weekly program. This will allow for simultaneous transmission to all states of the Federation.
One of the primary focuses of the program will be to continuously raise awareness among various stakeholders about the activities and programs of the Commission as it seeks to achieve regulatory excellence, in addition to simplifying issues related to telecommunications services for the average consumer.
The program will be spiced up with user experiences obtained through consumer-related events and vox pop, allowing a diverse group of telecom service users to learn from and apply them in the use of their services.
The process of raising awareness of the industry will be facilitated by the prominent inclusion of expert perspectives. Quiz shows with rewards for viewers and listeners will also be a regular part of the program.
The initiative is anticipated to increase the Commission’s presence on radio and television in an effort to notify stakeholders as soon as possible about changes and problems in the telecoms sector.
