The Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Plc and the Nigerian Communications Company are exploring areas of partnership in the printing of security documents in Nigeria and beyond, NSPM Plc has said.
The Managing Director, NSPM, Alhaji Abbas Masanawa, said this in Abuja on Thursday when he led the top echelon of the company on a courtesy visit to the telecommunications regulatory body.
Masanawa, according to a statement made available to our correspondent in Abuja on Thursday, also disclosed that the minting company was positioning itself to be able to secure minting jobs from abroad.
Responding, the Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, Prof Umar Danbatta, said he inherited a world-class organisation when he was appointed the helmsman of the commission in 2015.
According to him, he had since been building on what he inherited in order to add value to the processes and performance of the NCC.
Danbatta said it was for maintenance of standards that another government agency, the Bureau of Public Service Reform, gave the commission a platinum rating in 2017.
He said, “The verdict is out there on the performance of the commission as a word-class regulatory agency. We didn’t pass this verdict by ourselves. But it took a lot of hard work and commitment by both management and the entire members of staff of the commission for us to achieve the enviable position we are today.”
