Professor Umar Danbatta, Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, said this in Lagos on Thursday during the annual African Tech Alliance Forum (AFRITECH) 2021.


The programme is themed: “Embracing Changes and Digital Transformation in the New Normal.”

Danbatta said, “Already, we are set for the auction of some spectrum slots in the 3.5GHz band. The other day I was at the National Assembly, I informed the Senate that we were 95 per cent ready for 5G. Today as we speak, I am delighted to tell you that we are already at 97 per cent completion.

“Consistent with our mandate as enshrined in the Nigerian Communications Act 2003 (NCA-2003) and other guiding legislation, we have been working to ensure the penetration of broadband services in line with Federal Government’s targets, as contained in Nigerian National Broadband Plan (NNBP), 2020 to 2025.

“The Committee set up to auction the Spectrum has already developed an Information Memorandum (IM) which is already published for inputs and comments from all industry stakeholders. Prior to this, a 5G deployment plan was developed and we have since secured Federal Government’s approval.”

Danbatta noted that there is a need for a significant increase in network connectivity requirements as a result of an unprecedented upsurge in internet traffic, occasioned by the use of many web applications.

He said the government was planning to auction spectrum in 3.5 gigahertz (GHz) band to operators for the deployment of 5G network in the country.
