Senate to probe DSTV over alleged price hike

The Senate has finalised plans to commence a probe on DSTV, over the alleged price hike.
A Senator said DSTV and its parent company, Multichoice Nigeria has come under fire by some Nigerians for their insensitive attitude to subscribers.
DSTV was also accused of arbitrary increase in the subscription charges, and refusal to adopt the pay as you use model.

He also said the company has been involved in several law suits as a result of their price hikes, adding that the move was in the interest of football loving Nigerians. Speaking on the development, Senate President Bukola Saraki, said:

“we must play our role to ensure that we protect Nigerians and ensure that the best global practices are what is happening in our own country so I would want the committees as directed to look into the matter particularly to ensure that the CPC played the role they should play in ensuring that the rights of Nigerians are always protected.”

The Senate President also mandated the relevant committee to report  its findings back to the Senate.
