Executive vice chairman and chief executive officer of Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) Professor Umar Garba Danbatta declared 2017 as the for Nigerian mobile subscribers.
He was on Wednesday during a visit to the South East Zonal Office of the Commission in Enugu.
“Very soon, we will unveil a plan to give a concrete expression to our declaration of the Year 2017 as the Year of the Consumer,” Danbatta said.
He said the year 2017 is the year of the consumer as the Commission must ensure that it evolve initiatives and programmes designed to enable phone users derive maximum benefits from telecoms service.
Furthermore, he said telecom consumers need to take advantage of the toll free line 622 to lodge complaints about services rendered by the operators; and to also activate the ‘Do Not Disturb’ (DND) Code, 2442, to tame the instances of unsolicited massages and calls they receive from telemarketers.
