The Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) Prof Umar Danbatta, has,  on the occasion of the International Women’s Day (March 8),  congratulated all the women in the Commission, disclosing that gender inclusiveness in the commission’s affairs permeates all cadres and disciplines.

In a press statement he personally signed and was made available to Newsmart, the NCC boss said the occasion presents another opportunity for reiterate the Commission’s irrevocable commitment to promoting gender equality and inclusive participation in line with the theme of the celebration: ‘DigitALL: Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality’’. 

The statement reads in part: “Today, gender inclusiveness in the Commission’s affairs permeates all cadres and disciplines. About 50 percent of the Commission’s Management team is made up of women who have distinguished themselves, and demonstrated capacity, capability and desirability to contribute to the success of the Commission in promoting and sustaining the growth of the telecoms sector.” 

According to the NCC’s boss, it has been established across the world, and in all parts of human endeavours, that inclusion of women in leadership, has contributed in commensurate organic growth, which justifies the notion that development of any nation will be incomplete without the participation and contributions of women. 

“This is why we are deliberate, purposeful and conscious of the need to encourage women and girls to partake of the innovative digital opportunities available to them to improve their lives and skills in ways that fulfill their needs and aspirations through their chosen careers,” he explained.

He thus concluded that “on this note, and on behalf of the Board and Management, the entire NCC family, I felicitate with our women folk and wish to share in their joy of womanhood, and the expected greater roles they have been destined to play in promoting peace and harmony in the world.”
