Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) yesterday promised to improve its web presence to ensure efficient service delivery to the industry just as it emerged as a two-time reigning champion of the ‘Best Overall Website of the Year.’
The commission came top among 103 government parastatals in the country in the 2018 Jurist Award powered by Phillips Consulting, a leading management consulting firm in the country.
The victory came after a painstaking assessment of more than 103 paratstatals in the country, where the telecoms regulator beat the likes of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Bank of Industry (BoI) to second and third places respectively.
Receiving the award on behalf of the Executive Vice-Chairman of the NCC, Prof. Umar Danbatta, the Head, Information Technology at the Commission, Mr. Abraham Oshadami, said the award indicated that NCC’s efforts at improving its efficiency through building a robust website was being acknowledged by the industry.
“For us at NCC, we want to see the award as a drive to do better. We would continue to do better. We try to improve on our service delivery in all that we do. We try to ensure that we keep NCC website the way it should be as the first window to the world and we are working to make it even better,” Oshadami said.
Web Jurist Awards is a result of a research conducted into websites’ best practices. It will be recalled that the telecoms regulator managing an industry of more than $70 billion worth of investments, won the same award in 2017. Speaking earlier at the presentation of the award in Lagos, Senior Partner, Phillips Consulting, Mr. Oluwaseun Ngonnase, said 210 organisations’ websites were assessed across six different categories including banks (20), insurance (47), state governments (29), paratstatals (103), telecoms (4) and Aviation (7).
The Jurist Award was started 16 years ago and through the e-Business Team of Phillips Consulting to measure the quality of organisations’ websites and how well much attention was paid to their development in their recognition as a key business tool in the digital age.
