In doing so, he also challenged them to pay more attention to the operational efficiency and service delivery capability and performance by telecommunication industry players to subscribers.
The EVC gave the charge on Wednesday at a two day round-table organised by the commission with the academia, industry and other stakeholders at the Centre for Gender Studies, Bayero University, Kano from 24-25th October, 2018.
Dambatta noted that such precise studies will surely be an interesting read, given the new insights such research may provide, stating that the telecom industry has enormous potentials for enabling environmental, social and economic benefits through broadband connectivity.
