Abuja - The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has initiated a project to distribute information and communications technology (ICT) equipment at secondary schools and higher institutions in the country.

The equipment will be distributed under the Digital Awareness Programme (DAP) and Advanced Digital Awareness Programme for Tertiary Institutions (ADAPTI).

NCC Zonal Controller in Port Harcourt (Rivers State) Austin Odo, disclosed the plans.

He spoke on behalf of the newly-confirmed Executive Chairman of the Commission, Umar Garba Danbatta at the ongoing first Ebony Youth Development Submit on ICT in Education.

The event is held at the Akanu Ibiam International Conference Centre, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

Odo briefly touched on the prevailing issue of poor service offered by the mobile network operators.

He called on consumers to take advantage of the Commission's "622" toll free customer care line, so as to seek redress if they felt underserved by their service providers.
