The mandatory implementation of the ‘Do-Not- Disturb’ code by the telecoms operators takes effect from today.
The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) had few months ago given all the telecoms operators in the country up to June 30 to switch on the 2442 code to allow any subscriber who does not want to receive unwanted messages from the operators bar such messages.

NCC’s Executive Vice Chairman, Prof Umar Garuba Danbatta, had told the operators in Abuja that effective date for compliance remained today.

Yesterday, the telco sent SMS to most of its customers to join the Do-Not-Disturb list if they do not want to receive unwanted campaign or marketing messages.
