NCC
in a rejoinder signed by its Director of Public Affairs Tony Ojobo
yesterday said Senator Solomon Olamilekan, who led a Senate committee on
a visit to the commission Tuesday only commended NCC for suspending the
proposed data price floor.

He
wrote: “The Deputy Chairman of the Committee, Senator Solomon
Olamilekan who led the team did not say or give any endorsement of the
so called data tariff hike.
“He
simply commended the activities of the Commission for responding to the
pains of Nigerian consumers, by suspending the proposed tariff hike.”

Senator Olamilekan also denied giving the endorsement in a statement by his media aide, Kayode Odunaro.
