NCC seals two phone companies over standards

Published by Guardian on Mon, 20 Feb 2012


THE Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has sealed off the offices of two mobile phones companies at the popular Computer Village in Lagos at the weekend.The NCC, which claimed that the companies were selling and distributing non-type approved phones in the country, added that the firms found culpable in this act were seven, but that the commission started its clamped down on two of the firms.According to NCC, the two phone companies are Ken Xin Da Mobile and G-Tide mobile phone, which sells their phones at the Otigba market.Head of Enforcement at NCC, Idehen Efosa, who led the clamped down, disclosed that in 2011, the commission noticed seven companies advertising phones that were not tested by the telecoms umpire, stressing that, to avoid unnecessary face off between NCC and the companies, it had advertised in the dailies for such companies to desist from such act, rather, they should bring their products for certification by the commission.Efosa explained that the regulatory body had written these companies, informing them of a meeting, which they never honoured.He added that a public notice was then given to warn them to bring their products for certification.''So today, after the expiration of the notice, which actually ended in December, we are here to seal their offices. We will continue to pursue them until we rid our society of phones that are not type-approved in the country. We wrote letters to them dated September 14, 2011 and they acknowledged these letters on September 16, 2011, but they never honoured our invitation.
