The management and personnel of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) have been given a duty to accomplish well by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof. Isa Pantami.

During a two-day retreat in Abuja that was jointly organised by the NCC and the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy, Pantami made this call.

The retreat's theme, 'Effective Management in the 4th Industrial Revolution' specifically related to carrying out the ministry's mission, was assisted by Pantami.

According to him, the performance was necessary to address new leadership difficulties the telecom industry was experiencing.

Critical, collaborative, and analytical skills are relevant to organisational progress, according to Pantami.

He added that the government was devoted to enhancing the knowledge of its workers.

The minister emphasised the value of managers having strong leadership qualities and leading healthy lifestyles because these traits improve work output and service delivery quality.

"Most of the institutions are doing well but as the saying goes: the result of hard work is more work.

“Secondly, we want to make sure that our today is better than yesterday and our tomorrow is better today.

“We are here to improve on the performance of work done by agencies, parastatals under the ministry, but now they are most important.

“Let us ensure that after this event we become better managers and leaders.

“It is better for leaders to under promise and over deliver rather than over promise and under deliver.”

Pantami added that promising 100 per cent and delivering 80 per cent, will be termed a failure.

“But if you promise 60 per cent and deliver 80 per cent you have over delivered.

“You must learn to do your assignments before the deadline to avoid being under pressure to deliver and avoid mistakes.

“And it is not also good for your health, to work under pressure that may result in high blood pressure,” he said.

Earlier, Prof. Umar Danbatta, the NCC's executive vice-chairman, said that the retreat will aid in repositioning the commission.

According to Danbatta, the scheme would not only benefit the Commission but also improve service delivery to Nigerians and the country's telecoms sector.

He tasked the attendees with developing plans to deal with the various facets of the digital ecosystem and ensuring that they effectively interacted for the benefit of the country.

“The commission will continually innovate to meet its mandate and to ensure the satisfaction of all stakeholders; government, consumers, and licensees.

“Our gathering is to brainstorm on effective management in the FIR to strengthen our continuous regulatory commitment towards this important theme of this retreat,” he said.

In attendance was the Executive Commissioner for Stakeholder Management (ECSM), Adeleke Adewolu, the Chairman of the NCC Board, Prof. Adeolu Akande, as well as representatives from the Ministry of Communications and the Digital Economy.
