Prof Umar Danbatta Receives ALO Leadership Exellence and Economic Impact Award 

The Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Prof. Umar Danbatta has received the Leadership Excellence and Economic Impact Award issued by the African Leadership Organisation.
ALO, an organisation that publishes The African Leadership Magazine, conferred the award on the NCC helmsman at their annual Africa Legislative, Legal and Good Governance Conference which was held recently at the Sheraton Hotel, Abuja.
The conference was themed: “Policy, Justice and Global Cooperation for Building Back Better”.
According to ALO, Danbatta deserves the prestigious recognition because of his accomplishment as the Chief Telecom Regulator in Nigeria. It added that the country’s telecom sector has developed tremendously over the last five years.
The organisation also cited the successful auction of the 3.5 gigahertz (GHz) spectrum band marked for the deployment of the Fifth Generation (5G) networks. 
It further hinted on the uncommon regulatory strides of his in continually creating a level-playing field for investors especially to reflate telecom-induced growth of the economy in the post-pandemic era as proof of his outstanding achievements.
Presenting the award to Danbatta, Dr Ken Giami, the Chairman, ALO, emphasised that in keeping with the ALO’s tradition of celebrating African excellence and achievement, it has continued to showcase the bright sides of the continent’s success stories by giving recognition to deserving individuals. 
Giami was, however, emphatic that one of the individuals, whose efforts have been instrumental to the growth of the Nigerian economy is Danbatta.
“Danbatta’s visionary contribution to the society is making our communities a better place for all and his contribution continues to shape Africa’s socio-economic growth and development. 
“Danbatta has exemplified resilience, determination, and commitment in business and policy landscapes despite the diverse challenges on the continent. This is why we are recognising him today as an icon of leadership,” Giami said.
He noted that ALO was founded to uphold and encourage growth in Africa, all Africans and people of African descent, adding that it explains why the organisation has continued to showcase and promote Africa.
Receiving the award on behalf of Danbatta; Chizwa Whyte, Deputy Director at the Legal and Regulatory Services Department of NCC, appreciated ALO for the award and stated that the NCC considers it another encouraging milestone to do more in regulating the nation’s telecommunications sector. 
Whyte equally commended ALO for the recognition of the excellent leadership offered by the NCC Boss in taking the telecoms industry in Nigeria to a higher level of significance and relevance.
“This recognition is a clarion call to us to do more for the industry by ensuring good policies and regulatory initiatives are in place to ensure the Federal Government’s policy direction on the digital economy is achieved,” Whyte said.
The African Leadership Organisation has committed the last 14 years to promoting good governance and impactful leadership on the Continent and promoting African opportunities and African dignity globally. 
 The objective of ALO is being achieved through the promotion of Afrocentric and reputation-boosting content, the facilitation of African trade and market entry solutions across communities and business networking platforms, as well as through public sector training and consulting.
