NCC approves harmonized short codes for mobile networks, directs implementation

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) on Monday, attracted industry commendation for its efficient regulatory processes that have given verve to the realisation of full digital economy in the country at the opening of the AfricaNext show held at the Landmark Event Centre in Lagos.

The Chief Executive Officer of CashToken Africa, Mr. Lai Labode, said the manner with which the commission understands and supports the emergence of companies that have critical roles to play in actualising the dreams of the digital economy indicates that Information and Communication Technology (ICT) will make positive impact on the nation’s economy.

Labode, while speaking at the CashToken Africa’s Forum at the 2023 AfricaNXT conference which focused on, ‘Socially Smart Business Models: Universal Cash Reward, Direct Sales Gamification and Wealth Redistribution’, said NCC’s approach to transform the telecoms industry and contribute to the Federal Government’s digital economy agenda was reflected in the diligence, speed and smartness in processing recent applications including that of CashToken, which, he said, had led to a major collaboration with Mobile Network Operators.

CashToken Africa, operated by CeLD, is a Nigerian company advocating performance-based customer rewards and nudging firms to reward their customers with life-transforming rewards.

Other participants also spoke about the demonstration of commitment to efficiency in NCC’s operations and attainment of excellence in regulatory oversight, a key item in the commission’s extant Five-Point Agenda for transforming the telecom sector.

NCC is one of the sponsors and key agencies participating at the AfricaNXT event and will take to the stands on Thursday, 9th February, 2023, from 1.00pm-2.00pm, at the FutureNow Stage, with a theme that will focus on its mandates and efforts towards the realization of the digital economy agenda of the Federal Government.
