Ghana to decentralise telecoms regulator’s operations

Mr. Paarock Asuman VanPercy - NCA Director General

The government says it has initiated policies that will see the operations of the National Communications Authority (NCA) decentralised.

The Minister of Communications, Haruna Iddrissu told reporters that the decentralisation is to make the NCA show presence in all the regions.

“As I speak the Authority is in the process of establishing regional offices in Kumasi, Sekondi-Takoradi and Tamale to enhance close monitoring activities and also help address customer concerns in a decentralized manner,” says the Minister in speech during a press briefing October 3, 2011 in Accra.

He adds “Temporal offices in these three areas would be ready for commissioning and operation by the close of November 2011. Three additional regional offices in Volta, Brong-Ahafo and Upper East Regions would be established next year.”

The NCA is the regulator of the telecommunications industry in Ghana.
