Four directors at the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), have suddenly been redeployed to different departments.
The directors to assume new roles, included the Director, Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement
Department, Mr. Efosa Idehen; Director, Public Affairs Department, Dr. Henry Nkemadu; Director, Consumer Affairs Bureau, Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, and Director, Research and Development, R&D Department, Mr. Ephraim Nwokonneya.
Mobileswagg, gathered that the change took immediate effect.
In the new order, Adinde is the commission’s new Director, Public Affairs Department, while Nkemadu resumes at the Research and Development department of the commission. Recall, he was a deputy director before he was promoted and moved to Public Affairs department in 2019.
Also, Idehen becomes Director, Consumer Affairs Bureau, while Nwokonneya is the Director,
Compliance Monitoring, and Enforcement Department.
Apparently, the reshuffle was motivated by a renewed confidence in the Executive Vice Chairman, Prof Umar Danbatta who Federal government recently gave a nod for a second shot at the top position of the regulatory agency. The EVC has shown the willingness to break some eggs in order to prepare a sweet omelette for the industry.
He took the entire industry by surprise when barely two weeks after his reappointment, he announced
a new five year strategic management plan.
Now, barely two days after, he has rejigged his top management officers.
