Again, FG orders NCC to reduce cost of data

The federal government on Tuesday, November 5 insisted the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) must work out modalities to reduce the price of data in the interest of Nigerians.

This was the position of the minister of communications and digital economy, Dr Isa Ali Pantami.

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

He mandated the management of the NCC led by its board chairman, Senator Olabiyi Durojaiye, to work out the modalities with other stakeholders in the industry to address the complaints as soon as possible.

Senator Durojaiye had led members of the board on a courtesy visit to the minister.

“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,” The Nation quoted the minister as saying.

Last month, the minister had directed the NCC to bring to stem the tide of illegal deduction of the data of subscribers and work towards the downward review of the cost.
