NCC’s consumers forum to tackle fake products

WORRIED by the outcry in the telecommunications sector on the increased wave of fake products in the nation’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) market, the Nigerian Communications Commission would this Friday, October 17 in Markurdi, Benue State, host its consumer forum on this subject.

The forum, according to the spokesman of NCC, Mr. Dave Imoko, is a localized version of telecom consumers’ platform to engage service providers in the ICT sector.

A press statement made available to Champion Infotel involves participants from the NCC, the service providers cutting across most key operators like MTN, Glo, Zain, and NITEL, as well as consumers among other industry stakeholders.

NCC also said in the press statement quoted the regulator as saying that the question and answer sessions would enable service providers and other stakeholders to address consumer problems and establish a way forward for the smooth operation of the sector.

The theme for this forum, “Curbing the production and sale of fake products,” would also engage the panel of discussants in addressing NCC’s mandate of Protecting, Informing and Educating (PIE) the public.

Further, the organisers advised the public to seize the opportunity of this programme which is scheduled for 1.00 p.m. at the Banquet Hall of Benue Hotels, to resolve their nagging questions and contribute to an improve telephone service delivery.

The Consumer Affairs Bureau’s Interactive Outreach Programme (COP) had earlier held in many cities including Lagos, Abuja, Ibadan, Port Harcourt, Onitsha, Enugu, Kaduna, Kano, Jos, Calabar, Minna, Bauchi, Owerri, Yola, Umuahia, Ilorin, Zaria, Asaba, Abeokuta, Keffi, Lokoja and Yeneagoe.
