Public Notices

The following are the Public Notices issued by the Nigerian Communications Commission. By the publication of these notices in print, broadcast or online, the Commission seeks to inform the public of developments and upcoming actions relating to its activites and the Nigerian telecommunications industry.

The Management of the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, has received enquiries on the advertisement for recruitment into various vacancies in the Commission.

The Nigerian Communication Commission, the regulator of the telecommunication industry in Nigeria, supports amongst other things, telecommunications-based innovations, inventions and research from tertiary institutions in the country that are practical, locally realizable and have clear potential of developing the telecommunications industry.

Pursuant to this objective the Commission invites proposals from academics in tertiary institutions that have feasible research ideas capable of replacing or enhancing foreign technologies in the telecommunications industry in Nigeria. It is envisaged that the initiative will help build capacity in the tertiary institutions and promote Nigeria's contribution to the pool of technologies in use in the communications industry.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) in fulfilment of its statutory mandate to assure the security and integrity of the national telecommunications network wishes to alert all operators and their respective subscribers of the recent outbreak of a Ransomware Virus known as “WannaCry”. The Ransomware is capable of infecting and encrypting all files on a system or any smart device until an amount is paid for a decryption key, or other means of retrieval (which may lead to data loss) are used to recover the system as an alternative. This situation demands that proactive measures be taken by all players in the telecommunication eco-system to forestall the hazards of critical data loss, financial losses and ultimately network/business disruption.

The attention of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC} has been drawn to the circulation of letters of award of various contracts purportedly written by the Commission's Secretary.

The Commission wishes to categorically state that these letters were not issued by the Commission.

When contracts are to be awarded by the Commission, adverts are published in various newspapers, the Federal Tenders Journal and our website. The procurement process adopted by the Commission is always transparent and can be duly verified.

The Nigerian Communications Commission hereby informs the general public that the 5.4GHz band spanning 5.470 – 5.725 GHz frequency range is a licensed band in Nigeria.

Transmission of signals or use of equipment in any form on this band without a frequency license obtained from the Nigerian Communications Commission is illegal and shall not be tolerated.
