NCC Dedicates Toll-Free Number As Presidential Election Hotline

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has dedicated its 622 Consumer Toll- Free number to serve as February 25th presidential election incident hotline.

The Executive Vice Chairman (EVC)Professor Umar Danbatta made this known in a statement on Tuesday.

Danbatta said the line would enable Nigerians report any issues that may affect them, or others, during the presidential election.

According to the statement,”this step is to support the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), in its patriotic commitment, towards the conduct of hitch-free elections in Nigeria.

“The Toll-Free Number 622 is the second-level complaints centre through which consumers of telecommunications services are allowed to make calls directly to the Commission, to resolve issues concerning their telecommunications services which the service providers are unable to do.

“However, in consideration of the critical nature of this election and to alleviate emergent issues that may arise at the voting centres, or any parts of Nigeria thereof, the Commission has considered it expedient to dedicate the Toll-Free Number 622 to accommodate all types of complaints on election day.

“This is with a view to resolving such issues by contacting and conveying such to relevant agencies, authorities, or organisations for timely resolution.

“The 622 Election Incident Monitoring Centre will be manned by top Management officials of the Nigerian Communications Commission. The hotline will be open to the public from 8.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. during the Presidential and National Assembly elections.

“Members of the public are, therefore, invited to take advantage of the Election Incident Monitoring Centre Hotline, 622,” the statement said.
