“That after the motion by Rep. Unyime Idem seeking to investigate non implementation of Pay As You Go tariff by DSTV and other broadcast satellite service providers, the House in its wisdom set up an adhoc committee headed by him to investigate the matter.”

“During investigation, DSTV increased the prices of its bouquet. Irked by this act of insensitivity, the Committee asked the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, the Regulator, to order DSTV to revert to the old price.”

“DSTV responded by saying that the NBC Act does not give it powers to regulate or fix prices for her services stating that the forces of demand and supply is the determining factor”.
