House of RepsThe House of Representatives on Thursday mandated its Committee on Communications to investigate alleged unwholesome practices by telecommunication operators in Nigeria.

The committee is expected to submit its findings within four weeks.

The resolution is sequel to a motion jointly sponsored by Eddie Mbadiwe (PDP-Imo) and Frank Enokorogha (PDP-Delta) and adopted without debate.

According to Mbadiwe, the companies have raked in millions of naira as innocent citizens who have not subscribed to some of their sales promotions are being charged without authorization.

He said the companies had also refused such citizens credit refunds when demanded.

Mbadiwe said if the trend was not checked, Nigerians would continue to lose their hard earned money without hope of any redress.

The House also mandated its Committee on Information to intervene in the rift between the Broadcasting Organisations of Nigeria (BON), the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) and Independent Broadcasting Association of Nigeria (IBAN).

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the committee is expected to report its findings to the House within one month. (NAN)
