Data rate increase: Nigerians mobilise for mass protest

President Muhammadu Buhari...protest against his government's decision
We want to alert Nigerians of the plot by the Federal Government led by President Buhari to take away internet and cut off people from social media, the only avenue connecting the people with one another to discuss the issues as it affect them.

According to a campaign which is not signed but is widely circulated. It ran thus, “recall that Federal Government tried to ban Social Media through the National Assembly but it failed. Now, the Federal Government has instructed all the TELCOS - MTN, AIRTEL, GLO, ETISALAT etc to increase the cost of data by 300%. You may have received the SMS notification from them.

What it means is that the N,500 data will now be N6,000.

Buhari has purposely created this Recession and economic hardship to make life hard for the people as a means of getting more "absolute powers".

He also tried to get absolute powers but the Senate stopped him. Even now Buhari is operating a military dictatorship.

We call on all Nigerians to come out en-mass to Social Media from today and vent their anger using the hashtag #"NoToTariff Increment" if you really hate what is going on.

Don't let Buhari use this ploy to cut off our fellow Nigerians who may be unable to afford this current high tariff from the internet.

We Won't allow him to take away the only tool we are using to criticise his bad government, don't be cowed by a tyrant, read the release.
