The minister gave the advice at a meeting with NCC management on the progress made in the implementation of the Short-Term Performance targets set for it.

The minister lamented by saying that ” “with the prevailing high cost of data in Nigeria, the citizens still do not enjoy value for money as subscribers’ battle daily with illegal deduction of data, poor Quality of Service (QoS), among others.”

Dr Isa Pantimi reminded NCC that one of their main job as communication regulator in the country, is to protect the interest of Nigerians and disengage all irregularities and unprofessionalism.

The Minister has however told Nigerians that the federal government will get to the root of the matter and ensure a better decision that will benefit mostly Nigerians.

The Minister’s attention has also been drawn about how other network providers charges them unjustly, such as Airtel which charges between #50.00 to #52.00 among other network providers.
