Board of NCC may be constituted soon as Senate confirms nominees

Green light on the chances of reconstituting the management board of the National Communications Commission (NCC), shined Thursday as the Senate approved the appointment of some nominees including Mr Aliyu Abubakar, as a non-executive commissioner on the board of the Commission.

Other nominees confirmed by the Senate were Uba Maska (Executive Commissioner), Prof. Millionaire Abowei (Non Executive Commissioner) and Abdulazeez Salman (Non-Executive Commissioner).

Business Hilights recalls Abubakar, from Bauchi State, had earlier in 2016, been nominated to represent the North-East on the board by President Muhammadu Buhari, but was rejected based on his poor educational qualifications by the 8th Senate.

However, President Buhari in his wisdom, re-nominated the same Abubakar again two weeks ago only for the 9th Senate to confirm him yesterday without recourse to his low educational qualification.
