NCC Releases Short Codes To Stop Unsolicited SMS by NnamdiChidi(m): 1:40am On Apr 28, 2017
THE Nigerian Communication Commission, NCC, has released a new short code, 2442, for stopping unsolicited SMS, as the commission reiterated that it remains committed to availing telecom consumers with valuable information on their right to quality service.

This resolve was made known by the executive vice chairman of the Commission, Prof. Umar Danbata, represented by deputy director consumer affairs, Alhaji Ismail Adedligba, at the 84th edition of NCC’s outreach programme themed: Information and Education as a Catalyst for Consumer Protection, in Abuja.

“This forum is aimed at creating an atmosphere of interaction between the regulator, consumer and telecom operators to deliberate on issues regarding telecom services, in our bid to ensure consumers enjoy uncompromised service. In NCC the consumer is king; therefore, the consumer must be accorded the right to be heard, as well as the right to safety. Our aim is to create awareness on quality service by using the code 2442 and 622 in cases where complaints made to telecom providers are not attended to” Adeligba said.

Also speaking at the event was Mr. Ayoola Oke of Consumer Advocacy Group, said; “Consumers are the patrons of the industry and telecom services over the years has recorded tremendous success and popularity, thereby calling to mind the fact that the consumer is a pivotal character in the industry.”

Responding, telecom operators assured consumers that all hands will be on deck to ensure that the best services are rendered.

it's a good initiative. But I would advice jobless people like myself who are still seeking for employment not to use the code(s). We all know some companies don't use the mail while inviting applicants for interview, they rather use the bulk sms platform. The code will also stop you from receiving message from any bulk sms platform which means you've reduced your chances of being invited for interview. A word is enough for the wise, make i carry my wahala comot for this thread

The only workable shortcode is 'Fine'. The only language Nigerian telecom companies understand when you tell them 'I don't want' they oblige.

Other codes, they always find a way round

In NCC the consumer is king ; therefore, the consumer must be accorded the right to be heard, as well as the right to safety.

Una dey craze angry

After forcing all Telecom operators to reduce data cap.

Now you dey talk say "the customer is king".

As kings, we have protested the reduction in data cap but no one listened.

As a king, I have ordered thunder to fire your left nyash and your right balls.
