Nigerian Senate Orders NCC To Stop Its Intended Internet Data Price Increment

Your worst enemy might, one day, be your best friend. This was what happened some hours ago. Senate Leader Ibn N’Allah, who sometimes ago raised a motion on censorship on social media, has come back to fight for us. Last week, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) directed Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to increase Internet data tariff and Nigerians are already expressing their dissatisfaction with this directive.

But fortunately for us, our one-time-hated senator, Ibn N’Allah, raised a motion today in the house about the proposed data charges increment, and lucky for us, other senators in the house condemned it and resolved that NCC halt the new tariff.

These are some of the tweets confirming the decision in the senate:

 

Nigerians have also been reacting to the move by the senate on Twitter by expressing their satisfaction with this decision.

NCC has obeyed this directive. We can now be happy again. This is the tweet to the effect.
