Director of Corporate Planning and Strategy of the Nigerian Communications Commision (NCC), Mr. Nnamdi Nwokike, has taken over as the new Public Affairs Director of the Commission.

TheNewsGuru (TNG) reports this is following the retirement of quintessential Tony Ojobo, the now former NCC Public Affairs Director, from public service at the age of 60 on Friday.

Many, including Omoniyi Ibietan, have described Ojobo as an amazing media encyclopaedia that superintended the NCC public affairs department in a remarkable and sustainable manner.

Introducing the new NCC Public Affairs Director, Ojobo said, “Nnamdi is a great guy, and I have no doubt that he will do a great job”.

Nnamdi was former Director of Projects at NCC before he was redeployed to Corporate Planning as Director in 2014. He has created necessary impetus for some of the projects undertaken by the Commission as NCC’s Director of Corporate Planning and Strategy.

With over 20 years experience in the industry, he became the head of business development in 2005, where he managed the implementation of various telecommunication projects including Nettel @ Africa, spectrum monitoring and management system.

Nnamdi, who joined the NCC in 2001, had worked as a consultant with Multiver Systems Limited, a consulting firm that was charged with setting up of the National Planning Commission.

He also had some stint in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry working with AG Leventis Group; Seven-Up Bottling Co and with the Nigerian Breweries Plc.

Joining the NCC in 2001, he aided in setting up the Consumer Affairs Bureau of the Commission and acted as head of the unit. During his tenure, he created the necessary infrastructures for consumer education and protection which culminated in the setting up of Telecoms Consumer Parliament (TCP).

The new NCC Public Affairs Director, who also has some other achievements to his credit, had also been adopted by the Conference of Regulators as the Executive Secretary of the West Africa Telecommunications Regulators Assembly (WATRA) in 2007. He was also re-elected in 2010 for another 3-year term.

TNG reports the principal goal of the public affairs department of the NCC is to provide adequate and timely information in order to build a cordial relationship between the Commission and its stakeholders.

The department, positioned to be the image maker of the Commission, is poised to work with its stakeholders towards the growth and development of the Nigerian Telecom sector.

Upon his new appointment as Director of Public Affairs, Nnamdi would be required to develop and execute strategies that are intended to create and uphold a positive public image of the NCC.
