Senate stops NCC’s planned data tariff hike

The Nigerian Senate has told the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to stop the planned hike in data tariff.
Senators resolved in plenary on Wednesday, November 30 that the planned increase was totally uncalled for and unfair to Nigerians.
Senate says the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) should stop data tariff hike.
Deputy Senate Leader Ibn N’Allah raised the motion on the increase in data tariffs by the telecommunications over policies of the NCC and all senators condemned it in entirety.
The Senate president Bukola Saraki said: “It is very important that we protect the people that brought us here this is the height of irresponsibility by at this time without any consultation from the statistics it is almost four times the price.”
The Senate has now mandated the Communications Committee to carry out through oversight on the process to ensure that Nigerians are carried along in the process. It also mandated Communications Committee to ensure that Nigerians are not short-changed.
The Senate added that the Communications Committee should investigate the allegations of failure of the service providers.
