In a statement confirming their appointments, the NCC said that; “Helen Paul, the renowned comedian and actress who also signed on alongside Ali Nuhu as the NCC’s Face of the Telecom Consumer, visited the Commission’s Head Office in Abuja today (Wednesday) where she met the Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC, Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta and other members of the Management team.
