Nigerians React to N6.98 Charge for Using USSD Code

Nigerians have taken to Twitter to react to the directive of the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Nigerian Communications Commission to deduct the sum of N6.98 as charge on all USSD transactions.

The directive was as a result of an agreement reached with deposit money banks, after a disagreement between banks and telecom firms over USSD and other text message transaction requests.

The charge is expected to be withdrawn from users’ bank accounts and remitted to mobile network operators, who provide infrastructure for the service to operate.

Nigerians have expressed their displeasure on Twitter. Read some of the reactions below:
