What is really happening in Nigeria? Why is it that the average citizens are presented with one of the worst hardship conditions? It is not getting funny any longer as the common man in the street doesn't have any hope again. No quality education, no work/employment, no better infrastructural development, recession, strict laws etc.
Imagine when everyone rejoiced that the telecom industry in Nigeria has finally heard the complaints of people by reducing price of data plans and call rates this year, the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) just mandated all Telcos in the country including MTN, Etisalat, Airtel and Glo to increase price of data plans effective from December 1st 2016.
This is absolutely oppressive and cannot be acceptable by me especially in this period when so many people including students are finding life so difficult because of the economic situation in the country. How can students from poor family survive? How can they be subscribing for data to carry out researches and assignments? Our government doesn't think in that part. They just think in one direction.
This is sad, NCC believes that this is one of the ways they can generate revenues for the Government. They know that we can’t do without buying data… so they decided to mandate all Telcos to increase their data price… hmm!
Recently, CBN governor Godwin Emefieli proposed taxes on phone calls that exceed 3 minutes. My question is; what have they done with other taxes and privatization they did before? We wake up everyday with one bad economic news or the other.
With this, we might be getting just 500MB with N1000 instead of the 1.5gb we normally get. So sad.
Just call MTN's 181 self-help service number now to here things for yourself.
What's your take on this decision by NCC? Do you think it will make the nation better or is it the same old story?
