The Nigerian Communication Commission, (NCC) has good news for all Nigerians. For those who detest receiving unsolicited messages, they have a permanent solution.

Known as the ‘Do not Disturb’ policy, the NCC urged all Nigerians to send the 2442 short code in order to determine the type of messages they want to receive from telecoms operators.

Speaking on Thursday, December 8, in Abuja the executive vice chairman of the NCC, Umar Danbatta, gave this advice, during the 79th telecom consumers parliament help in Abuja.

Danbatta said that the parliament, with its theme: Implementation of the `Do not Disturb’ (DND): the journey so far,’ was aimed at sensitizing the public to the policy.

He also explained that this was necessary following the huge amount of complaints the NCC has on the pains of unsolicited messages been received.

This was why the moved into action and made the activation of 2442 short code a success.

He said: “The code will enable consumers to control the type of messages they receive.

“I am glad that it has come into effect and I urge all consumers to take advantage of this new regime by sending “stop to 2442’’ to avoid unsolicited messages.”

The vice chairman also spoke on the need for enlightenment by both regulator and the operating companies for the public.

“It is on this regard that the theme of today’s parliament becomes relevant.

“The objective is to place the issue on the front burner of our discourse until unsolicited messages become a thing of the past,” he said.
It takes so long to learn simplicity.
