The Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Dr. Eugene Juwah will present a keynote address which will cover the following topical issues:

The President of ATCON, Engr Lanre Ajayi, will set the stage for the day’s discussion through a welcome address.

The forum which is open to all operators in the telecoms sector in Nigeria, is designed to create an opportunity for key industry players to interact with the regulator, with the aim of building a continual good working relationship. It is also aimed at creating a platform for the regulator to update the industry on the regulator’s directions and plans for the industry in the coming years. The forum would also serve as a veritable platform for the regulator to receive feedback from the industry with a view to understanding the challenges the industry players have to grapple with while growing the industry.
