Tight race for PDP Presidential ticket
Sun, 07 Oct 2018

Except for a major upset, the odds, yesterday, seemed to favour Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, in the race for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential ticket.
At press time, hot on Tambuwal’s heels and also tipped to displace him was former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.

Hours before the party’s elective congress proper got underway at the Adokiye A’smiesimaka Stadium, in the outskirts of Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, intense horsetrading geared at pruning the number of aspirants to a manageable size failed to yield fruits, as most of them were adamant on stepping down.

The Guardian gathered from sources that efforts were also on to scuttle Tambuwal’s ambition by some of the aspirants who felt that he was being unduly favoured by some PDP governors.

One Rivers State delegate disclosed that most of the governors were backing Tambuwal because he was young and hails from the seat of the caliphate.

The source explained that after intense negotiations, majority of PDP governors zeroed down to their colleague from Sokoto State because of the belief that the leadership of the caliphate would easily mobilise emirs in the North West, North East and North Central states to support the candidature of Tambuwal during the general election.

Former Vice President Abubakar, a PDP source said was poised to put up a formidable fight in a bid to garner votes from delegates of states not controlled by the PDP.

It was gathered that most PDP governors were uncomfortable that if Abubakar emerges, he could be an easy target for political witch-hunt by the present administration, which might hide under the guise of fighting corruption to jeopardise the party’s chance of reclaiming the presidency next year.

But sources within Abubakar’s campaign team complained of attempts by some governors to deliberately thwart their principal’s ambition by denying him bulk votes from their respective states.

Nwaulune: We need more spectrum allocation from ITU
Sun, 07 Oct 2018

Director of Spectrum Administration at the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Austine Nwaulune, in this interview with ADEYEMI ADEPETUN, spoke on spectrum management, administration and how the commission has been able to boost government coffers with attendant revenues.
What are the new developments in spectrum administration in the country?

SPECTRUM management in Nigeria is improving and the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is doing everything possible to ensure effective regulations.

As part of measures targeted at improving that space, the commission has introduced spectrum trading to the industry through the guidelines, which are on the commission’s website.

NCC has also opened up the 60GHz spectrum to license exempt use. There is also the publication of guidelines on short-range devices.

We have active infrastructure sharing; national roaming initiatives and we are finalising development of commercial communications guidelines for the communication sector.

There is the belief that spectrum is scarce, and that operators do not have enough of it to rollout their telecoms services. Is spectrum what can be sourced from ITU?

It is true that spectrum is scarce and the operators need spectrum to rollout services. It is also true that it is the duty of the regulator to seek for more spectrum allocation from ITU.

The international forum to seek for spectrum allocation is the World Radio communication Conferences (WRC), which are held every three to four years.

It is the job of WRC to review, and, if necessary, revise the radio regulations, the international treaty governing the use of the radio-frequency spectrum and the geostationary-satellite and non-geostationary-satellite orbits.

Revisions are made on the basis of an agenda determined by the ITU Council, which takes into account, recommendations made by previous world radio communication conferences.
