Winners for the Lagos ‘Infraco’ will be ready before the end of this month, Dr. Eugene Juwah, Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian CommunicAtion Commission (NCC) has disclosed.
The Executive Vice Chairman (EVC) who made this known at the Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria (ATCON) and Regulators Forum 2014 said the commission will be meeting with the consultants in Dubai this week to deliberate on bids for the Lagos infrastructure.
Juwah explained that the meeting was shifted to Abuja at the instance of the consultant who had expressed fears over Ebola.
He however said that the winners will be issued licensed as soon as they emerged.
Meanwhile, the EVC has assured that very soon, all sim cards used in the country will be produced in Nigeria.
According to him, a policy for local capacity is in the offing and that, most likely, the production of sim cards will start before the close of this year.
