The minister of State for labour, Festus Keyamo has urged Dstv, Startimes and telecommunication companies in Nigeria to give Nigerians a free one-month subscription.
He shared this on his Twitter handle saying it would be their own contribution to ease the pains of Nigerian workers at this time of lockdown.
1. As one of the Ministers entrusted with the welfare of Nigerian workers, I politely urge @DStvNg & @StarTimes_Ng to extend all EXISTING subscriptions by at least one month, free-of-charge, as their own contribution to ease the pains of Nigerian workers at this time of lockdown
2. I would also urge @MTNNG @9mobileng @AirtelNigeria @GloWorld to consider giving Nigerians some token airtime & data to ease their pains & to ensure that communication with individuals & authorities is ensured in cases of emergencies, especially when toll-free numbers are busy
