NCC says set to complete emergency communication centres

Monday 22 January 2018 | 15:17 CET | News
Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has said that the Emergency Communication Centres in the 36 states of the federation will soon be completed. Fidelis Onah, NCC's director for technical standards, told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the centres were intended to bridge the communication gap between different emergency response agencies in the country. Onah said NCC was consulting with the National Security Adviser and state governors for the completion of the centres to ensure they were not duplicated by state governments.
