Speaking during an introductory meeting with the media in Abuja, Maida revealed that the Commission was in the process of combating illegal Subscriber Identity Mode (SIM) in the country, stressing that sanctions would be meted against identified culprits.

He said: ‘Pre-registered or illegally registered SIM has been a challenge for a long time. In 2021, there was a policy to link NIN with SIMs, thinking that such would take care of the problem, but people in the value chain exploited the loophole. By the end of this month, SIMs without NIN will no longer work.”NYSC PORTAL

“We need to put a smile back on the faces of consumers. NCC is clear on this; we need to protect the interest of consumers. They remain number one because that is where you extract values from. Yet, the interest of licensed operators will also be protected while we put eyes on their activities to see the level of compliance.”

“Be rest assured that the consumer is the number one priority for us, but I think we also need to understand that this is an industry that needs to attract investments, which means that the interest of the licensee as stated in the Act can also be protected.JAMB Portal

“What we need to find is how to manage that delicate balance whereby the consumer is happy and the licensees can also get their return on investment, but number one is that the consumer has to be happy and right from the point where you are selecting the operator or service to use, it has to be seamless when you are using it, it has to work when you are engaging them for support, they have to be supportive.”
