Keyamo to DStv, MTN, others: Give Nigerians free subscription, airtime, data


Minister of State for Labour, Mr. Festus Keyamo, on Monday urged telecommunications and cable entertainment providers to grant Nigeria free one-month subscription as well as airtime and data freebies.

In two tweets, he said: “As one of the Ministers entrusted with the welfare of Nigerian workers, I politely urge @DStvNg & @StarTimes_Ng to extend all EXISTING subscriptions by at least one month, free-of-charge, as their own contribution to ease the pains of Nigerian workers at this time of lockdown.

“I would also urge @MTNNG @9mobileng @AirtelNigeria @GloWorld to consider giving Nigerians some token airtime & data to ease their pains & to ensure that communication with individuals & authorities is ensured in cases of emergencies, especially when toll-free numbers are busy.”
