NCC disclaims allocation of 383 million new phone numbers

Published by The Nation on Sun, 21 Feb 2021


By Blessing Olaifa, AbujaNigeria communications Commission (NCC) has disclaimed the allocation of 383 million new telephone numbers to operators, asserting that a publication in respect of such allocation was not true. It noted that a publication wrongly interpreted an updated report on National Numbering Plan, posted by the Commission on its official website. According to the Commission the report posted on the Commissions website on Friday 19th, February, 2021, under the heading: National Numbering Plan (2021 Q1), was the Total Number of Telephone Numbers allocated to all the telecommunications services providers since the inception of digital mobile services in the country in 2001.The update report is, therefore, by no means, either an indication of new allocation or new activation of telephone numbers in Q1 2021, as wrongly interpreted by the media outfit, the NCC said in a statement signed by its Director of Public Affairs, Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde. Rather, the report on the Commissions website titled: National Numbering Plan (2021 Q1) is a routine periodic report issued as part of the Commissions regulatory mandate to publish and update all telephone numbers allocated to service providers for the benefit of stakeholders, the Commission added.The Commission said: The purpose of the National Numbering Plan in the telecommunications sector is to set up a uniform numbering scheme and the associated dialing procedures to be used in the networks to allow the subscribers and operators to set up calls. The general public and all our stakeholders are advised to disregard the said report in the national daily and be guided accordingly.
