Reps Propose Bill To Stop Unsolicited SMS By Telecom Operators

The House of Representatives is planning amendments to the constitution that will protect subscribers from receiving unsolicited text messages and other alleged “unknown deductions” by telecoms operators.




The Chairman of House Committee on Telecommunications, Saheed Akinade- Fijabi made this known while featuring at the South-West Group of Online Publishers (SWEGOP), media chat yesterday in Ibadan, Oyo State.

Akinade-Fijabi, who disclosed that the NCC amendment Act has passed through the second reading, said: “there are a lot of amendments in the NCC Act but the major one is on the unsolicited messages.”

The All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmaker said the amendment of the Act “will serve as a legal back up needed to sanction any erring companies.” According to him, the major amendment on the NCC Act is that of the unsolicited messages, after it has been passed and the president gives his assent, it will serve as sanction to any defaulter.

    1. save the numbers as airtel 1 airtel 2 for as many numbers they use in calling you. when you see the saved numbers and don't pick, they will reduce the call and even stop. the robotic machine call will notice you not picking.

  6. There's a 'Do Not Disturb' code you can send if you no longer wish to receive such messages but this amendment of the Act is necessary so that if any telecoms company still sends you unsolicited messages, they can be sanctioned by the NCC.

  7. Pls you guys should stop them today. How can text message wake you up and what you will see on your phone screen is to download caller tune.

  9. Abeg the bill should not pass any reading stage, it should be signed and passed into law with immediate effect and quick urgency. Aunt Stella! na because you no dey naija na make you dey yan like that. The messages and calls are so frustrating and irritating. Even after sending stop and deactivating, they will still use another technique. Make them pass the bill into law SHARPLY...
