Mobile users protest against poor services

16 Feb 2006

A Nigerian consumer rights group, the National Association of Telecommunications Subscribers (NATS) has called on the country’s 18 million mobile users to switch off their mobiles tomorrow, in a protest move against ‘erratic and expensive services’. NATS claims that operators could lose between NGN4 billion and NGN5 billion (USD31 million and USD39 million) as a result of the one-day boycott. Cellcos have confered that they are not overly concerned about the planned protest as they are confident that many people, particularly business customers, will not take part.
