The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has named an existing exec as its new director of public affairs.
Dr Henry Chukwudumeme Nkemadu’s appointment comes at a crucial time, with the regulator upping the ante in terms of its oversight of the Nigerian media industry, according to NCC executive vice-chairman Umar Garba Danbatta.
Nkemadu first joined the NCC in 2003 as its principal business development manager, handling proposals on capacity-building initiatives in liaison with international agencies.
He has worked in a variety of roles for the NCC, including a stint as head of special intervention projects. He also holds multiple degrees from universities in Nigeria and the US,.
“Dr Henry has had a rewarding opportunity of traversing the entire telecom regulatory ecosystem, which experience he will find handy as the new spokesman of the commission,” Danbatta said.
