NCR welcomes new Telecoms Chamber

By Nana Appiah-Acquaye, Accra, Ghana
Ghana’ s Network of Communications Reporters has welcomed the new CEO of the country’ s new Telecoms Chamber.

The Network of Communications Reporters (NCR) has welcomed the appointment of Kweku Sayi-Addo as the Chief Executive Officer of the newly-formed Ghana Telecoms Chamber.

The network said it was particularly delighted at the appointment in view of the rich experience Sakyi-Addo holds in various fields. It described the appointment as timely and appropriate.

The Dean of the NCR, Charles Benoni Okine noted that at a time when the telecommunications sector had seen tremendous growth in spite of the challenges, the network was of the belief that Sakyi-Addo would use his vast experience to serve as an interface between the various telecom companies on the one hand, and government, the sector regulator and other key partners in the business on the other.

The network also described as “ heart-warming” a pledge by the new CEO that he would ensure that his outfit contributed ideas and technical expertise to help craft policies for the rapidly growing telecoms sector.

Many consumers of the various telecom operators have expressed deep concerns about the quality of work they receive, an issue the regulator and the sector ministry have also complained about.

As a result, the NCR expects the new CEO to help address the concerns impartially to make the telcos redeem their image and ensure that consumers receive good value for money.

The NCR has also been concerned about the recent run-ins between local telcos and the National Lottery Authority (NLA) over promotional activities.

The NCR expressed the hope that the Chamber would prevail on players in the industry to play by the rules and not do anything to bring their image into disrepute.

In its quest to play its role in this vibrant sector, the NCR pledged its support in the Chamber’ s endeavors.
