The federal government has insisted the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to reduce data cost in Nigeria.
Dr Isa Ali Pantami gave this authoritative decision, he said his office has been filled with complaints about high cost data plans from Nigeria network providers.
“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.”
The management of Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) led by its board chairman, Olabiyi Durojaiye has been commanded by the minister, Dr Isa Ali Pantami during a courtesy visit to work the modalities with the stakeholders in the industry to reduce the price of data plans in the next five working days.
