Wiko Mobile has publicly stated that its range of devices, which were launched in the Nigerian market, have been certified not only by the National Communication Commission (NCC) but also by international regulators.
According to Wiko, the NCC granted “Type Approval” for the various Wiko phones to operate as terminal equipment on Nigerian telecommunications networks. Haru Alhassan, Director, Technical Standards and Network Integrity signed the approvals on behalf of the NCC Director General in September 2014, ahead of the formal introduction of the phones on the Nigerian market.
According to Telecompaper, Wiko products approved by NCC include: Highway, Highways-Signs, Bloom, Rainbow, Lenny, Goa and Sunset. Others are Riff, Luib3, Kar3 and Fizz. Channel Marketing Manager, Adebayo Abodunde Adams said in a statement that Wiko is proud of its quality standards as attested to by Nigerian and global bodies, contrary to a mistaken report in a national daily alleging non-accreditation of Wiko phones by the NCC. All Wiko phones have the CE marking, an EU label to ensure a product’s compliance with all legislation. Wiko Mobile launched in Nigeria in October 2014.
