The directive at the instance of the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, is with immediate effect and an intervention at making the process easier and affordable.

In a letter conveying the implementation of the directive, the Executive Vice Chairman NCC and the Director-General of NIMC informed the Minister that the relevant authorities had met with, and negotiated a waiver with the Mobile Network Operators in that regard.
