NCC Disowns Letter to Bidders Canvassing Payments

ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – Telecoms industry regulator, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), has disowned a letter purportedly written to some bidders/operators canvassing for Intention to “Bid, ITB, payments to a certain Bank Pekao, South Africa in respect of the proposed 2.6GHz Spectrum Auction.”‎
In a disclaimer notice which the NCC made available to Sundiata Post on Wednesday, the agency stated that “as a responsible commission with proven records of transparency in all its activities including auction processes, we will NEVER do anything outside the rules approved for these processes.
“At no time did any letter whatsoever emanate from the commission to any operator. That is why it looks strange that some unscrupulous persons could forge the EVC’s signature purporting it to be same in a sinister motive to deceive and swindle would-be investors in the Spectrum of payments of such money thereto.
“Intending bidders/operators and members of the public are advised in their own interest to disregard the content and texture of the vexatious letter as it did not in any way and form originate from the commission,” it said.
The NCC noted that the account number known for the auction was domiciled only with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
It advised would-be and successful bidders to clarify any letter from the Commission before making payments and urged bidders and operators to be guided accordingly.
