It is symbolic for the fact that an important organisation like the Civil Society Groups for Good Governance appreciates the good work the Commission has been doing to create digital access for all and sundry in the country.

According to Bassey, as the telecoms regulator, the Commission aims to support and partner with all relevant stakeholders and Nigerians at large.

This, according to him, will ensure that the growth of the country’s socio-economic system is sustained through promotion of universal access and service to all Nigerians, regardless of their circumstances.
