The Federal Government of Nigeria has stated that South Africa based telecommunications company, Multi-Choice has no right to sack Nigerian workers under any guise.
This recent development comes after the the management of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) and the management of MultiChoice on Monday, August 31, 2020.
The management of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) summoned MultiChoice over the planned increase on some DStv and GOtv packages which takes effect from today despite a similar increase three months ago.
According to MultiChoice, in a message to subscribers, DSTV Premium would move from N16, 200 to N18,400; Compact Plus from N10,925 to N12,400; Compact from 6,975 to 7,900, and for users of GOtv Max, they would have to pay the sum of N3,600 from 3,280.
The latest increase comes amid a subsisting order of the House of Representatives seeking a stay of action on the earlier hike which the company blamed on the Federal Government’s 2.5 percent increase in Value Added Tax (VAT) from five to 7.5 percent.
