A review of a bill for an act to establish the Federal Competition Commission and for purposes connected therewith.
"This...book gives a comprehensive review of the work of the Nigerian Communications Commission in regulating anti-competitive practices in Nigeria's communications market. To that end, the book, among other things, discusses the concept of a substantial lessening of competition, which is the substantive standard used for evaluating anti-competitive conducts in Nigeria's communications sector, and the substantive application of this standard by the Commission in the areas of anti-competitive agreements and practices: abuse of a dominant position; and mergers, acquisitions, and takeovers. The book also discusses the various conducts deemed by the Commission to result in a substantial lessening of competition, and the approach adopted by the Commission in regulating communications Licensees with market power and/or in conducting a dominance determination for the purpose of imposing ex ante regulatory obligations. It is intended that this book will serve as a...research guide for competition and communications law practitioners in Nigeria, and especially officials of the Commission investigating anti-competitive practices. Academics, economists and law students with an interest in the competition regulation of communications services in Nigeria will also find this book useful."-- Back cover.
