Public Notices

The following are the Public Notices issued by the Nigerian Communications Commission. By the publication of these notices in print, broadcast or online, the Commission seeks to inform the public of developments and upcoming actions relating to its activites and the Nigerian telecommunications industry.


The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) would like to draw the attention of the general public to a news story in a national daily which wrongly interpreted an update report on National Numbering Plan, posted by the Commission on its official website.

Specifically, the report published by the media outfit with the headline: “NCC allocates 383 million new telephone numbers to operators," purported that the Commission allocated 383 million new telephone lines to telecoms service providers in the first quarter of 2021 alone.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) would like to draw the attention of the general public to the false advertisements being circulated online soliciting applications for a purported recruitment exercise by the Commission for 2021/2022.

In the course of its regular online surveillance aimed at protecting telecoms consumers and industry stakeholders, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has discovered a spurious Facebook Account purporting to be that of the Commission. We have since contacted Facebook Team to take down the fake account.

The fraudulent Facebook account with the name: “Nigerian Communications Commission – NCC – Info Zone” was opened by unidentified individuals, ostensibly to deceive and defraud unsuspecting members of the public, some of whom, as NCC believes, may have inadvertently signed on to the fake Facebook account.

The Nigerian Communications Commission in exercise of its functions under the Nigerian Communications Act 2003 (the Act) published a pdf Consultation Paper on Determination of Capital Structure of Licensees in the Communications Sector in Nigeria. (457 KB)

Interested stakeholders are by this notice invited to make written submissions on the subject and send to the addresses below before close of business on Friday March 19, 2021.
