Fayose begs for the reduction of data and cable tarrifs
Former Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, has called on the federal government to prevail on network and cable providers to reduce tariffs.
“Nigerians have been at home since the beginning of this Covid-19 pandemic, even now that the lock down is relaxed, causing increase in Data usage. Govt will be kind enough to prevail on Network and Cable TV Providers to reduce their tariffs to support Nigerians at this time, “
Fayose, who added that the human and economic losses, occasioned by the pandemic, would be mind-boggling, stressed that “in the face of all these, leaders should remain as leaders and stand up for their people.”
He hailed the Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for his pro-activeness and unrelenting efforts in the management of these challenges as well as his transparency and interface with the people.
He particularly called on the federal government to emulate the Lagos state government and do more in the area of prompt information dissemination to stem the tide of misinformation in the country.
