Nigerian Telcos Will Pay ₦500,000 for sending You Unwanted Messages

In the first week of May 2016, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) announced that Nigerian telecom operators had one month to start implementing the ‘Do-not-Disturb’ (DND) code.

With the 2442 short code that will be stipulated and assigned, subscribers could opt out of the barrage of advertorial text messages from these telcos.

At a Telecoms Consumer Parliament in Abuja at the time, Prof Umar Garuba Danbatta, Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC said sanctions awaited any telco that failed to comply with the directive.

However, it seems measures for the sanctions have finally been put in place nearly 2 years later.
