Matters in Nigeria

The Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria (ATCON) has drawn up a code of ethics for professional and business conduct, reports AllAfrica. The idea for a code of ethics was first envisaged in 2013, at ATCON’s 21st anniversary celebration. ATCON president, Lanre Ajayi, said the code is designed to guide members as the association pushes for industry self-regulation. http://bit.ly/1H54mif Meanwhile Nigerian telecoms group, MTN, has been fined $5.2 billion by the Nigerian regulator for failing to disconnect subscribers with unregistered and incomplete SIM cards. http://bit.ly/1lrL10L And technology experts have called on the federal government to consider convergence of the Nigerian broadcasting and telecoms regulators as the best option for digital regulation in the 21st century. “The experts who made the call at this year’s West Africa Convergence Conference (WACC) held in Lagos, said there was need for government to merge the regulatory powers of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), which regulates the telecoms industry, and the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC).
