1 Million More Nigerians Have Activated DND on Their Lines

Before I continue with this post, let me clarify and explain what D-N-D means for those that don't know.
Simply put, D-N-D stands for Do-Not-Disturb, and as the name suggests,it is a service that allows users to block unauthorized sms and calls mostly from service providers and other advertisements.
According to recent reports, about 9 million Nigerians have activated the DND code on their phones.

This was revealed by the Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission(NCC), Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta, at the just concluded Mobile World Congress where he was a speaker.

The number was said to have increased from 8 million subscribers last year to 9 million in February— representing an increase of 12.5%.

Although, the D-N-D command was created to stop subscribers from receiving unsolicited calls from service providers, it isn't 100% effective as some calls and texts still manage to crawl in. This unprecedented breach of service has forced the NCC to introduce the 622 service line, a toll-free line that allows subscribers to report cases of directly to the NCC.

Lets see if the new 622 line would stop service providers from disturbing her users.
