Fred Omotara, Lagos
The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has announced the adoption and publication of the final version of the Information Memorandum (IM) to guide the upcoming auction of the remaining lots of the 3.5 gigahertz (GHz) Spectrum for the deployment of Fifth Generation (5G) services in Nigeria.
In a statement signed on Friday by the NCC Spokesman, Reuben Muoka, the Commission said that it had earlier published a draft IM and requested stakeholders to make comments and inputs into the document to enrich its contents.
“Subsequently, stakeholders’ comments were collated and discussed at a Stakeholder’s Engagement forum hosted by the Commission on November 15, 2022 at Marriott Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, on the same subject.
“All comments have been considered and a final Information Memorandum to guide the upcoming auction is now available on the Commission’s website (www.ncc.gov.ng) with the link: https://www.ncc.gov.ng/media-centre/public-notices/1297-public-notice-final-im-3-5ghz-spectrum-band-2022.
“The Commission requests all stakeholders to check public notices in the dailies and visit the website to study and review the final IM,” NCC stated on Friday.
