The Chairman of the House of Representatives ad hoc Committee investigating non implementation of pay-as-you-go package by DSTV and other satellite providers in the country, Hon. Unyime Idem has assured Nigerians of justice.

Idem, who is the member representing Ukanafun/Oruk Anam Federal Constituency gave the assurance while addressing journalists in Abuja shortly after the inauguration of the committee by the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila.

The lawmaker said the matter before the committee affected vast majority of Nigerians.

“As chairman of this ad hoc committee, I want to assure Nigerians that their interest will be protected.

“When I moved the motion on the floor of the house, I stated that business of this nature, the customers should be given the right to choose what they want.

“We have interacted with Nigerians and what they want is pay-as-you-go so that when they are out in their respective locations, their subscriptions can be there and they will make use of it when they return.

“We are here to defend our constituents who happen to be the consumers; based on the inauguration today, I can tell Nigerians that justice will be done at the end of the day,” he said.

The Deputy Chairman House Committee on Communication said all stakeholders including the regulators and service providers would be invited to deliberate on ways to open up the sector, adding that all bottle necks would be critically looked into with the view to liberalising it for more interested Nigerians to benefit.
