Reduce Cost Of Data In The Interest Of Nigerians- Pantami Orders NCC

Reduce Cost Of Data In The Interest Of Nigerians- Pantami Orders NCC

 

 

Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, yesterday, insisted that the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, must work out modalities to reduce the price of data in the interest of Nigerians.

 

The Minister said his office has been inundated with complaints from concerned Nigerians about the high cost of data by telecoms.

 

He therefore, mandated the management of the NCC led by its board chairman, Olabiyi Durojaiye, on a courtesy visit to work out the modalities with other stakeholders in the industry in the next five working dates.

 

According to him, “I am urging the management of NCC to work towards reducing the price of data in Nigeria. It is too costly and people are complaining every day.

 

“If you go to other countries, even countries that are not as largely populated as Nigeria, data prices are not this high.

 

“I am also a victim of some of the infractions that are so common in the industry. You load your data, but you barely used 20 percent of it and the entire data is wiped off.”

    We have the likes of nkiru onyejeocha who kept enjoying our democracy dividends, and using our money to buy praises to her name in the line buying wrapper and rice for her party faithfuls, I thought she boast of attracting federal government attention to her people or is that one part of her political propaganda. Let her come ooo its time to give back to her people.
