The House Committee on Commerce has stated that it will consider increasing the budgetary allocation to the Competition and Consumer Protection Tribunal (CCPT).
The House committee also sought to implement the tribunal’s decision on “Pay-As-You-Go” against Multichoice Nigeria Ltd.
Ayotomiwa Ayodele, CCPT Head of Corporate Communications and Strategy Unit, announced in an Abuja statement on Saturday.
The House Committee considers tribunal budget review and seeks “Pay-As-You-Go” implementation
She stated that lawmakers promised to investigate the tribunal’s complaint regarding the reduction in its 2023 budgetary provision to reconsider the allocation.
Rep. Femi Fakeye, the chairman of the House Committee, praised the tribunal for its work during the year under consideration.
The CCPT Chairman, Hajia Saratu Shafii, said that the tribunal’s 2023 budget had been reduced by 38%.
For the tribunal to deliver better services, Shafii urged the committee to examine the budget and use its power of allocating funds to improve the tribunal’s lots.
According to the statement, the lawmaker took advantage of the chance to learn more about Multichoice Nigeria Ltd.’s involvement in one of the significant cases brought before the tribunal.
Her words, Hon. The presiding member of the three-member panel adjudicated on the case, Thomas Okosun, emphasized the tribunal’s verdicts and the recent judgment on Multichoice’s Stay-of-Execution petition.
She stated that the committee then tasked the tribunal with ensuring that the “Pay-As-You-Go” stance was enforced to prevent Multichoice subscribers across the country from paying for unused services.
