The Senate revealed the confirmation of the nomination at the Senate’s plenary on Wednesday via its official twitter handle @NGRSenate.
The confirmation tweet reads “The Nomination of Barrister Adeleke M. Adewolu as Executive Commissioner on the Governing Board of the Nigerian Communications Commission is CONFIRMED.”
Meanwhile, the Senate President, Ahamed Lawan lamented the poor performance of the NCC, adding that, many unregistered Sim cards were still in circulation.
Lawan said “I must confess that the NCC has not been doing well, we still have so many unregistered sim cards, some of the Telecommunication Companies still do not pay the necessary taxes. Nigerians still do not enjoy quality services from the Telecommunication Companies.”
President Muhammadu Buhari, on September 27, 2019, had requested for the confirmation of Adeleke Adewolu as the Executive Commissioner of the Nigerian Communications Commission.
The request, which was contained in a letter dated August 21, 2019, was read by the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, on the floor of the upper chamber during plenary.
The letter read in part, “In accordance with Section 8 (1) of the Nigerian Communications Commission’s Act, 2003, I hereby present Adeleke Moronfolu Adewolu for confirmation as Executive Commissioner of the Nigerian Communications Commission by the distinguished Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
