NCC Temporarily Suspends Do-Not-Disturb Policy as General Election Approaches

News reaching us that the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) temporarily suspends its directive to Telcos on Do-Not-Disturb (DND) policy.

Almost a year ago a policy was enacted, stating that Telecom companies that violate the Do-Not-Disturb directive will be fined the sum of N500,000. That policy has been suspended till further notice, so expect unsolicited messages.

This is to enable the service providers disseminate specific information on voter education on behalf of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). Currently, over 12 million subscribers in the country have activated the DND code.

The DND (as most of us already know) is an initiative to save Telecom subscribers from unsolicited calls/SMS. If a person registers his/her mobile number, then it would be illegal for telemarketers to send any sort of unsolicited SMS or calls on those numbers.
