The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has disclosed that its revenue target for the 2022 fiscal year stands at N632.39 billion

Prof. Umar Danbatta, Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC, made this known during the budget defence before the National Assembly Joint Committee on Communications in Abuja.

Danbatta explained that the revenue targets would also be made up of proceeds from the 5G spectrum auction.

According to him, “Each slot of the 5G spectrum is going for an exact price of N75 billion. However, in an auction, it can go as high as N100 billion.

“The exact price for the Spectrum auction in 2022 will give the Federal Government N300 billion; when the projected revenue is added to it we are expecting well over N600 billion because it is an auction.

“Our revenue in 2022 will be higher than what is being generated in 2021. For the commission’s main budget, a sum of N86.2 billion is proposed for recurrent expenditures, N29.36 billion is for Capital while N2.55 billion is earmarked for Special Projects.

Commenting on fears related to the 5G, NCC boss explained that the NCC shares the same concern because it is justified, adding that it has been sensitising Nigerians about the safety of the new technology.

He said: “Up till date, there is no credible evidence about the health hazard of the 5G technology, therefore, it is safe.”
