IT & Telecom Digest to host Ndukwe

Plans have been advanced for the hosting of the chief executive officer, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Dr. Ernest Chukwuka Anene Ndukwe, also known as Mr. Telecom, in Lagos, to commemorate his 59th birthday.

The occasion being organised by a Lagos-based Information and Communication Technology (ICT) magazine, IT & Telecom Digest, is scheduled to hold at the Golden Gate Restaurant, Ikoyi-Lagos on Sunday, September 2, this year.

Revealing this plans to Champion Infotel, Editor-in-chief, IT & Telecom Digest, Mr. Mkpe Abang said that the event is in line to honour Dr. Ndukwe to a special dinner party specifically to celebrate him.

He also pointed out that it would be a double celebration for the NCC boss as the Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) operations in Nigeria mark six years of unmatched success and growth despite the odds and challenges.

“The evolution is evident in the ubiquity of the mobile phone device from the lower rung of the economic ladder to the society’s high and mighty,” he declared.

For him, Ndukwe has been widely described as an enigma not only in Nigeria but also outside the shores of the country.

“The over 38 million telephone lines growth that Nigeria has achieved under Dr. Ndukwe’s stewardship as the head of the NCC is a testament to the sheer ingenuity he has infused into the commission. It is interesting to note, and sometimes amazing to a segment of the society that the NCC is a government agency; yet it has earned the respect and even envy of the private sector,” he asserted.

noting that Ndukwe has remained unassuming, humble and modest in spite of his successes.

According to Abang, Dr. Ndukwe has given so much to his generation and the country that no amount of time or resources spent to celebrate him now or in the future should be spared.

“If we all can do even a minute part of what Ndukwe has done for this country, then certainly Nigeria will be ahead of many so-called advanced countries,” he declared.

Meanwhile, stakeholders in the industry have been expressing support for the initiative taken by IT & Telecom Digest to host Mr. Telecom.
