CPC, NCC set up com­mit­tee to de­velop modal­i­ties to as­suage tele­com abuses

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Sun­day Michael Ogwu

The Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion Coun­cil (CPC) and Nige­rian Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Com­mis­sion (NCC) have con­sti­tuted a joint com­mit­tee to work out modal­i­ties to as­suage con­sumer abuses in the tele­com sec­tor.

The chief ex­ec­u­tives of the two or­gan­i­sa­tions, who took the de­ci­sion at the weekend when the Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of CPC, Mrs. Dupe Atoki, paid a cour­tesy call on the Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Chair­man of NCC, Dr. Eu­gene Juwah at the Com­mis­sion’s head­quar­ters in Abuja, gave the com­mit­tee two weeks to give its rec­om­men­da­tions.

Juwah, in his re­marks, said his or­gan­i­sa­tion will sup­port CPC in its de­ter­mi­na­tion to seek re­dress “be­cause it is in line with our Key Per­for­mance In­dices (KPI)”.

He said his or­gan­i­sa­tion has put mea­sures in place to reg­u­late the sec­tor with a view to pro­tect­ing the con­sumers, not­ing that “if we have not done any­thing, we don’t know where we will be.”
