Nigeria’s This Day writes that the country’s Communications Commission, the NCC, is reportedly ready to lift the ban on promotions and lotteries by telecommunications operators.
The Commission’s Executive Vice Chairman, Eugene Juwah, is quoted as saying that this is only applicable to operators who met Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
The statement follows “measurements” that the body is said to have carried in December 2012 to ascertain which operators have met these Indicators.
According to Juwah an agreement reached between the NCC and operators had allowed for sufficient time to repair and invest accordingly in networks.
The country’s Director of Public Affairs Tony Ojobo has stated that the ban would remain in place until such time as the Commission decides.
The NCC is said to have received numerous complaints from users and industry stakeholders against promotions run by telecommunications service providers.
