The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has issued a statement denying any involvement in the leaked audio conversation between Peter Obi, former governor of Anambra state, and David Oyedepo, founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide. The statement comes after the conversation, which touched on issues related to the telecommunications industry, was leaked online and generated a lot of controversy.
According to the NCC, as a regulatory body, it does not engage in private conversations with individuals or organizations. The commission also emphasized its commitment to promoting a fair and competitive telecommunications industry in Nigeria, and called on all stakeholders to work together to ensure that consumers are protected and that the sector continues to contribute to the growth and development of the Nigerian economy.
The leaked audio conversation between Obi and Oyedepo has sparked a lot of debate about the telecommunications industry in Nigeria, particularly with regards to the role of the NCC in regulating the sector. While the NCC has clarified its non-involvement in the conversation, there have been calls for the commission to take a more proactive approach in regulating the industry, particularly in areas such as consumer protection and quality of service.
As the debate continues, it is clear that there is a need for all stakeholders to work together to address the challenges facing the telecommunications industry in Nigeria. By working together, it is possible to create a sector that is fair, competitive, and responsive to the needs of consumers.
