NCC advocates responsible use of internet among youths NCC



The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has urged Nigerian youths to leverage Internet/broadband access to unleash their potentials for innovation and creativity, as well as their quest for job opportunities and skills acquisition.

The Executive Vice Chairman (EVC) of the Commission, Professor Umar Garba Danbatta, made the call during the presentation of 100 mattresses to the Federal Capital Territory's Permanent Orientation Camp of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Kubwa, Abuja recently.

The presentation of the mattresses was in demonstration of the Commission's solidarity and corporate social responsibility (CSR) to support the replacement of some of the items carted away from the camp by hoodlums during the EndSARS protests of October 27, 2020.

Speaking on behalf of Danbatta during the presentation, NCC's Director, Public Affairs, Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, said the youths play a great role in nation-building as they contribute to national development by bringing about social reforms, noting that the NCC will always support the course of the youth in the country.

He, therefore, charged the corps members to use Internet services for gainful and profitable activities, while also advising them to refrain from using their access to telecoms services for irresponsible and nefarious activities, which could land them in trouble.

"Access to telecommunication services, especially the Internet, plays a key role in job creation for the youths and ultimately for accelerating economic development. It is critical to the overall socio-economic well-being of every economy and the youth have a greater role to play, as agents of social change, in using the Internet for positive ventures," he said.

He also charged the large gathering of corps members, who attended the presentation ceremony, to take advantage of the various consumer-centric initiatives which the Commission has emplaced to protect and empower them as active users of telecoms services.

"I am happy to receive 100 mattresses donated by the NCC, under the leadership of Professor Umar Garba Danbatta, the Executive Vice Chairman/CEO, to alleviate the pains inflicted by the miscreants who vandalized the camp. The generosity of the NCC is coming at a time it is most needed, especially with the orientation camp in session."
