On his part, Mr. Paul Ochigbo, Alisa infinty, a Trade Partner with network providers, said that the workshop was a welcome development “and we want NCC to continue doing this.”

Ochigbo said he was  impressed with the workshop as it had made agents to know that it was

not all about pushing for sales and target but to put in mind national interest and security.

“Also, there are some infractions from agents revealed to us and I hope that from time to time, NCC will organise workshops like this to educate more agents and stakeholders so that they can do the right thing.”

Mrs Joy Ogbole, an agent and a participant, said that the NCC should try and organise more of such workshops to educate stakeholders on best practices in the industry.

She added that “with such workshops, we will be more informed about the dos and donts in the industry.”
