The Nigeria Communication Commission, NCC, has advised Nigerians to report cases of poor service delivery by GSM service providers.
This directive was given by Joseph Atoyebi, the Deputy Director of the Consumer Affairs Bureau.
Atoyebi told newsmen that: “It is the duty of the NCC to regulate the activities of the GSM service providers and we are always there to do that; no one should suffer in silence.
Atoyebi advised subscribers to always insist on their rights from the services providers.
He stressed that subscribers should not regard the services rendered to them by the service providers as favours, but services commensurate with what they paid for.
He said the commission was ready to consistently put the service providers on their toes.
He said that the commission had directed the service providers to always educate their customers by providing them with accurate information that would help them make informed choices.
He further stated: “Information and education must be seen and treated as catalyst for quality service; we at NCC shall never compromise that.”
The NCC official, however, debunked insinuations that the commission had been liberal in its official dealings with the service providers leading to a recurrence of same complaints from consumers.
Atoyebi added that: “We have not been liberal with them; we do not spare them.
“We do not joke with matters that border on customer satisfaction and the provision of quality service.”
