MTN WANTS FG TO BAN THE USE OF WHATSAPP, VIBER IN NIGERIA


Just Negodu! Very funny statements coming from MTN boss in Nigeria, I mean, I can't possibly take him serious. Asking the federal government of Nigeria to ban WhatsApp and Viber is very laughable. First of ncc attempted to increase our data fares now this rubbish is coming from MTN.




The Chief Executive Officer, CEO, of MTN Nigeria, Mr. Ferdinand Moolman, has disclosed that the activities of ‘over-the-top’ companies like WhatsApp, Viber have adverse effects on its business and affects the sustainability of Nigeria’s telecommunications industry.

In his own words, “the depletion of operator revenues by unlicensed providers of “over-the-top” telecoms services who do not have any physical presence; nor pay any taxes; nor make any significant contribution to employment or other socio-economic objectives of government in Nigeria.”

Speaking further, the CEO identified another factor as the inability of operators to access foreign exchange, explaining that “this is particularly debilitating given that most of our inputs are sourced off-shore. This has very significantly increased both operating and capital expenses.”

I don’t have anything against the above opinion of Mr. Moolman, because everyone has a right to air his or her opinions but banning whatsapp? Sir, I strongly disagree. Also, he was advicing the Nigerian government to take the part of the UAE. Let’s take a look at the step the UAE took below..

The UAE’s telecom operators banned the recently introduced voice and video calling feature on Snapchat 2.0. That's for Snapchat not WhatsApp or even Viber.

Following an update in software, the social messaging app users could chat with their friends on voice or video calls. However, this new feature in the app’s latest update is against UAE’s VoIP regulations.
It bans third-party providers from providing internet based telephony services.

So for him to want us (Nigerians) to toll the path of uae is simply ridiculous and baseless. Well I don't want to say anything more further than this.
Am I speaking the minds of you all my dear readers, let me here your take on this matter, please comment below....
