NCC museum gets Ghana praise

11 October 2013, 07:29Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Ghana might  emulate Nigeria by establishing a telecommunications museum in future.

The facility left a lasting impression on Kwaku Ofosu Adarkwa, Chief Director of that country's  Ministry of Communication, who was in Abuja for the just-ended Commonwealth Telecommunication Organisation (CTO).

The Nigeria Communications Commission’s (NCC) is museum situated at its headquarters in Abuja.

Adarkwa commended the NCC for building the facility.

“We went to visit the NCC museum and what is important about the museum is that it is a big showcase especially for the youth. It brings about the power of innovations, we have gone through the process of telegraph, through the analogue system and now we have digital. It shows to you the power of telecommunications and we must embrace and get our youths to be very innovative in the area of telecommunications,” he said.

He pledged to take the museum idea back to Ghana and ensure the country had its own facility.

“I am carrying memories of this good thing back home and I am going to challenge my sector so that we also develop a similar one in Ghana, where we can bring the youth especially those in the rural areas to have a feel of how innovations in the telecommunications industry have been,” said Adarkwa.
