While other countries have made internet access free for their citizens, the Nigerian government is doing the complete opposite and even now want to charge more for the struggle internet we get here.

A few days ago news made the rounds that the FG had ordered all Nigerian Network Providers to increase the cost of data plans because it has now become too cheap.

Some telecommunication companies have been sending out messages to subscribers that they will increase data rate from Dec. 1, in line with the Nigeria Communications Commission’s order.

In light of the current economic recession, lack of jobs and fallen Naira this news has understandably been met with a lot of opposition.

Young Nigerians who make up a large percentage of social media users have now taken to Twitter to drag President Buhari for this directive, with many saying the price increase is to limit online criticism of his administration.
