The other day, I caught a reply on a thread on Nairaland, the Nigerian online forum where a member threw a jab below the belt at MTN, following the fine that was slammed on the tele-communication giant for inappropriate business practices.
“MTN, how market” the online forum member demanded, sarcastically to his peril.
While the unsuspecting public are here feeling that MTN, a South African company, whom no Nigerian citizen or a Nigerian business can try a quarter of the criminal and dubious activities she perpetrate here in Nigeria deserve the penalty, the telecommunication giant have concluded plans to continue stealing, even more from unsuspecting subscribers to pay the fine without feeling the pain or loss a thing.
The other day I made a 15 seconds call on my trutalk plan, which they said is supposed to be 11kobo per second, and I was deducted a whopping N22. Can you believe that? There is also the case of the sms of free offer for a ring tone, and criminally laden promos, which either you accede to it or not, they would start billing you indiscriminately.
The other day one of the South African companies’ customer representatives called me from their GoTV company to enquire if I am enjoying the service they’re rendering, and I was categorical in telling the dude to go to hell with their criminal company. So sorry I wasn’t that nasty to the fellow, whom I discovered are only helpless and only surviving, but I was quick to point out to the guy that those guys can get away with every atrocities against the Nigerian unsuspecting customers because of the collaborations of most of our people, who encouraged them that they can get away with whatever they do. #GODBLESSSNIGERIA.
