Senate gives NCC approval to increase data price | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The Senate Committee on Communications on Tuesday approved the proposed data price hike by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

The Committee, which visited the NCC headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday as part of its oversight functions, said Nigerians should see the commission as being on their side on the issue of data price increase.

Senator Solomon Olamilekan (Lagos West) who spoke on behalf of the Committee members said the NCC had taken some commendable steps to sanitise the telecom industry and the data price hike was one of them.

He said “Each time we invited the leadership of the agency to the National Assembly, they honoured our invitation and responded to our inquiries, particularly during the MTN issue, and of recent the data price floor. They have acted in national interests and Nigerians see NCC as being on their side.”

While receiving members of the Committee, the Commission’s Executive Vice Chairman, Professor Danbatta, said unless the issues regarding the data price floor are resolved, it remains a whirlwind that would not do anybody any good.

  1. All of you shameful senators in the committee together with the NCC boss and his subordinates are fools as your first step/recommendation is to increase the data price! You did not talk about the quality of service - a situation where consumers will buy data and will not be able to use it until it expires. You failed to talk about the upload and the download speed, also you failed to talk about the data cap, likewise failed to talk on data balance rollover. All you can open your dirty mouths to say is that NCC was on our side! Whose side?

    It is not your fault, when square pegs are not put in square holes, this is what we get. What are the levels of their IT education before they are saddled with the responsibility of deliberating on Telecoms issues.

  2. Shame on you people. How many Ghana must Go do they give you people to do the wicked act. God will definitely punished you people with your family. Your action will affect those that want to be I. T. Compliance.
