Students On A Visit To NCC, Educated On Risks Associated With Internet Usage

Students of the Brookstone International Foundation School, Abuja, on a visit to the Nigerian Communications Commission's Head Office, Abuja, were privileged to be educated by the Commission on risks associated with unguided usage of the Internet.


The students and their teachers, who were hosted by the Commission on Tuesday, were exposed to artifacts that made them appreciate the evolution of telecommunications, and were also educated on regulatory activities  of the Commission and equally enlightened on what the Commission has been doing to protect telecom consumers of all ages. 


Addressing the students at the Conference Room of the Commission, before the students were led on a guided tour of NCC Museum and other areas, Abigail Solanke, Director, Corporate Planning, Strategy and Risk Management (DCPSRM) at the NCC, emphasised how important the Commission takes such educational visit.


Solanke, who was represented by Nwabuogo Okorie, Senior Manager CPRSM, said "the Educational Visit Programme is one of the key initiatives designed by the Commission to impart knowledge to the students, who are younger generation of telecom users on the evolutionary trends of telecommunication in Nigeria." 


She stated that such a visit  also provides an opportunity for the Commission to enlighten the students on cybercrimes and other risks in the cyberspace, such as cyberbullying, cyberstalking in order to ensure that the children are protected while online.


Solanke said that while children from many schools had been hosted on such educational visit, the Commission is further poised to welcome more students from other schools across the country.


“Hosting students on such educational visit allows the NCC to fortify teaching and learning by educating the students on the country's telecommunications sector beyond what they are taught in classrooms," she said.


Presentations were also made by representatives from the New Media and Information Security department as well as the Consumer Affairs Bureau (CAB) of NCC aimed at emphasising important issues about cybersecurity and to discuss what NCC is doing to protect telecom consumers in that regard.

    We have the likes of nkiru onyejeocha who kept enjoying our democracy dividends, and using our money to buy praises to her name in the line buying wrapper and rice for her party faithfuls, I thought she boast of attracting federal government attention to her people or is that one part of her political propaganda. Let her come ooo its time to give back to her people.
