ATCON to Strengthen Regulatory Policies

Association of the Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria (ATCON) in a communiqué at the end of its Annual General Meeting 2015 pledged to lobby for a better regulation in the sector, ITRealms reports.

ATCON President, Mr. Lanre Ajayi, while reading out the communiqué, told ITRealms that the fear of an environment of a weak legal framework necessitated its members to call for stronger regulatory policies that would protect and prioritize the survival of local investors at the same time not excluding foreign investors.

“We called for strengthening of a stronger regulatory environment because there are certain things that could be done better and to achieve that we have formed a strategic section of committees which would access and scrutinize these issues to certain rigors, which would be articulated and documented and we believe it’s not going to be flawed when presented to the government,” he said.

ITRealms also learnt that the Association intends to sit again with the appointed committees to finalize and document their reports for immediate presentation to the relevant authorities.

Equally ITRealms gathered that ATCON within the period of June 2014 to April 2015 has established laudable projects like the establishment of a training department at its secretariat, joined hands to host an International workshop on IPv6 2014, as well as organized the Telecoms Executive and Regulators forum 2014.
