‘Telecom Weekly’ back on TV

Reuben Muoka, Director, Public Affairs of NCC

Telecom Weekly, a programme of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is back on television. It began
 airing today, Tuesday, January 10, 2023, at 5.00 p.m. 

The newly packaged 30-minute weekly programme will regularly x-ray the Nigerian telecommunications and information communications technology (ICT) industry and provide awareness for consumers across the country and beyond.

Aptly tagged ‘Telecom Weekly’, debuts on NTA Network Services comprising more than 45 stations across the 36 states and Abuja and all local NTA stations are expected to hook up to the programme at 5.00 pm every Tuesday. 

The radio version of the programme will also air on Thursdays at 8 p.m. on the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) Network, for simultaneous transmission to all states of the federation with all the local FRCN stations expected to hook up during the weekly programme.

NCC believes the programme would add to the Commission’s share of voice on radio and television in a bid to provide stakeholders with timely information about developments and issues in the telecommunications industry.

In a press release signed by the commission’s director of public affairs, Reuben Muoka, one of the cardinal foci of the programme, apart from simplifying issues about telecommunications services for the average consumer, will be to continuously create awareness among various stakeholders about the activities and programmes of the Commission as it seeks to achieve regulatory excellence.

“User experiences, gathered through consumer-related events and vox pop, will be used to spice the programme to enable the cross-section of consumers of telecommunications services to learn from such experiences and apply them in the usage of their services,” the press release noted.

It also added that expert opinions will feature prominently to facilitate the process of creating awareness about the industry. Quiz sessions where viewers and listeners will win prizes will also be a regular feature of the programme, the statement concluded.
