The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, and the Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Umar Danbatta, have rejoiced with Aminu Ado Beyero on his coronation as the 15th Emir of Kano.
Mr Danbatta, who hails from Danbatta Local Government Area of Kano State, paid homage to the Emir, Friday evening, to congratulate him in his personal capacity and also deliver a similar congratulatory message on behalf of the Minister, Board of Commissioners and the entire staff of the Commission.
Mr Danbatta, in a congratulatory message during the visit, said: “On behalf of the Board, Management and staff of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), I heartily felicitate with Your Highness and the Kano Emirate Council on your coronation and presentation of Staff of Office as the 15th Emir of Kano”.
He said the Commission, while rejoicing with the monarch, also prays that peace, progress and prosperity continue to be the hallmark of his reign.
“As we delightfully share in the bliss of this historic event with Your Highness and the good people of Kano Emirate, we also pray for Almighty Allah’s (SWT) health, wisdom and guidance as you receive the staff of office,” the NCC Director of Public Affairs, Ikechukwu Adinde, quoted Mr Danbatta as saying.
Meanwhile, the EVC said the Commission will continue to work with traditional institutions towards advancing the course of telecommunications infrastructure deployment for the rapid socio-economic development of their communities.
“In the matrix of our stakeholder engagement, traditional rulers are the closest to people at the grassroots and therefore play a very important role.
“The Commission, therefore believes by working closely with the traditional rulers, we stand a better chance to seek understanding from the locales towards creating the needed conducive environment for telcos to build their telecoms infrastructure in their domains, thereby extending telecoms services that will transform the lives of the people,” Mr Danbatta added.
