1. Alhassan, Abubakar. A Decade of Dual Deregulation Communications Regulatory Policy Reform in Nigeria, 1994 to 2004.

Degree: PhD, Mass Communication - Journalism and Communications, 2008, University of Florida

Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation, commenced deregulation of its communication sector in the early 1990s. The then military regime enacted legislation that established regulatory agencies named National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) and Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to deregulate the broadcasting and telecommunications sector respectively. Until this development, telephony was the exclusive monopoly of the federal government and the federal and state governments exclusively monopolized broadcasting. The first licensed private communications providers commenced operations in 1994. About a decade after commencing the regulatory reforms, i.e. by the end of 2003, there is significant change in the Nigerian communications sector including over 100 percent increase in the number of broadcast stations and over 400 percent increase in the teledensity of the country. This study, adopting communication regulations theories and the ITU Guidelines for establishing communications regulatory agencies as analytical framework, examined the regulatory policy reform that is credited with these significant changes in the Nigerian communications sector. The study found that both public and private interests, bureaucratic elements, as well as local and global factors influenced the regulatory policy reforms in Nigeria's communications sector in the last decade. Consequently, it is difficult, if not impossible, to explain Nigeria?s regulatory policy reforms in terms of a single existent communications regulations theory. In view of the inadequacy of the existent theories to explain Nigeria's communication regulatory policy reform, the study suggested the adoption of the theory of government failure as analytical framework for examining communications regulatory policy reforms in developing countries like Nigeria. Further, the study found that based on the ITU Guidelines, while the telecommunications regulator, NCC, may be said to be somewhat independent, that is not the case with NBC, the broadcast regulatory agency. The study concluded by suggesting regulatory policy reforms necessary to make the NBC independent and to enhance the independence of NCC.
