Reno Omokri, a former spokesperson for ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and the founder of the Mind of Christ Christian center in California, has reacted to the hike in data tariff plan.
Omokri in reaction to the hike took to his social media page to criticise the new price saying: “Does anyone remember when GSM/Internet rate plans collapsed from ₦3k to ₦1k under ‘clueless’ Goodluck Jonathan? I need a witness. Please share and comment if you do remember. May God bless GEJ forever!”
The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is reported to have issued an instruction to telecom companies to increase the price of data so as to help the government generate taxes.
MTN Nigeria was the first to release a message to its customers about the policy that would begin on December 1.
In a related development, the Trade Union Congress (TUC) of Nigeria is warning against the proposed price hike for mobile internet services by the various telecommunication companies in the country.
The labour group said it would not take such move lightly in the face of the serious economic crisis the country is faced with.
