NCC interdicts promos, lotteries by telecom operators

NCC known as Nigeria Communications Commission announced an immediate ban of promos and lotteries run by telecoms operators in the country, they also noted “That termination of calls were becoming increasingly difficult from one network to another and overall consumer experience on the networks has become very poor thereby making it extremely difficult for subscribers to make calls successfully,”Tony Ojobo Director of Public Affairs of the commission said in his statement that the commission had received several complaints from consumers that did not favour the different promos offered by the network providers.

NCC Said: “Consistent with its processes, the commission has carefully evaluated the complaints received especially against the backdrop of sustaining the integrity of the networks, the general...
interest of the consumers, the socio-economic impact of these promotions on operators and other relevant stakeholders.

With all these complaints... The commission had to place a ban which took immediate effect and continue to remain in force until further notice. Affected operators are Globacom, MTN, Intercellular, Visafone, Etisalat, Airtel and Multilinks.

The commission also has given approval to the memorandum of understanding (MOU) entered into with the National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC)
