The Minister of Communications in Nigeria, Adebayo Shittu, has asked Telecom operators to roll over subscribers’ unused monthly data to the new month.
Mr Shittu made the request on Wednesday at a meeting with the operators in Abuja.
The Minister also urged the operators to desist from fraudulent and unauthorised charges or risk sanctions from the Ministry.
He explained that many Nigerians had sent in petitions to his Ministry over unauthorised charges or deduction for unsubscribed or unsolicited messages.
The Minister also frowned at the poor quality of service across all networks and cautioned against wiping out unused data of subscribers.
Mr Shittu also expressed concerns over the disengagement of Nigerian employees through outsourcing to foreign companies and discrimination against them by operators.
