NICO, ITREALMS recalled, was established by Act 93 of 1993, as a joint initiative of the Federal Government and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), a specialized agency of the United Nations with NICO mandate extended to training well-informed cultural officers, motivators and communicators on Nigerian cultural realities for development. Whereas NCC prides itself as the independent national regulatory authority for the telecommunications industry in Nigeria that supports a market driven communications industry that promotes universal access for all.
