Deolu Ogunbanjo, President, National Association of Telecommunications Subscribers (NATCOMS), has warned subscribers to be careful of the numerous tariff packages being offered by service providers.


The NATCOMS boss, who gave the warning in Lagos on Tuesday, called on subscribers who wished to participate in the telecom juicy packages to understand the terms and conditions before opting for any tariff plan.

He said that although subscribers derived some benefits from the numerous tariff plans, he revealed that most of such benefits were still in favour of the service provider.

According to him, the different tariff packages being rolled out by the telecommunications operators were normal occurrences in any competitive industry.

Ogunbanjo explained that the introduction of numerous tariff packages was a welcome development as long as such offers were made with a lot of freebies attached to them.

“In competition, you need to review your tariff on a regular basis, so as to attract your subscribers to keep using your network” he said. “One should exercise a lot of caution in analysing these freebies, because some of them are sometimes traps for you to get in and patronise them, while the service providers get most of the benefits”.

Ogunbanjo said that the regular tariff reviews by the operators should deliver lower rates to subscribers, otherwise subscribers should not subscribe to them.

He also pointed out that service providers were getting more proactive than before as competition was getting stronger by the day.

National Association of Telecommunications Subscribers (NATCOMS) which is an umbrella body for telecommunications/ICT consumers and subscribers rights protection advocacy in Nigeria was established in the year 2002.

Maza Maza warehouse: Distribution of COVID-19 palliatives was halted due to #EndSARS protest – Lagos govt



Maza Maza warehouse: Distribution of COVID-19 palliatives was halted due to #EndSARS protest - Lagos govt

The Lagos State Government has condemned the vandalisation of the warehouse at Mazamaza housing the food palliative packages donated to the government by the Private Sector Coalition against COVID-19 (CACOVID) group.

Recall that a mob on Thursday, October 22, vandalised the warehouse where COVID-19 palliatives are kept at Maza Maza in Amuwo Odofin Local Govt Area and looted palliatives. The warehouse is located on Benster Crescent, popularly known as Monkey village.

A statement signed by the Acting Commissioner, Agriculture, Abisola Olusanya, said the items belong to the Southwest, contrary to social media reports that they are all for Lagos, adding that distribution was on-going but had to be halted due to #EndSARS protests.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had on September 22nd 2020, formally taken receipt of the food palliatives from the CACOVID team meant for distribution to the indigent,” the statement reads.

The State had repackaged its share of the consignment and was distributing it before the protests that have affected activities in the State. The repackaging was being done to account for every beneficiary, according to the agreement with the CACOVID Group, which monitored the process,”

“The warehouse in question is not State-owned and its usage was made available to the CACOVID group. The distribution was on-going but had to be halted due to protests, before the invasion of the warehouse today.

“For effective distribution of the food palliatives, groups such as Transport Unions, Ethnic Groups, Religious Associations, Artisans and Tradesmen Association, Marketmen and Women Association, People Living with Disabilities, Orphanages and Old Peoples’ Homes among others were being used as the distribution channels to their members.

“The State Government, however, regrets the invasion of the warehouse and appreciates the support offered by the CACOVID group to the citizenry of Lagos.”
