NCC Expresses Concern Over Potential Tax Burden For Telecom Operators Due to Child’s Online Access Protection Bill | The Legend News

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has voiced apprehension regarding the proposal to impose new taxes on telecommunications operators in Nigeria to support the implementation of the Child’s Online Access Protection Bill.

During a session the House of Representatives’ Committee on Justice in Abuja, Mr. Abang Abua, the Deputy Director of Legal at NCC, representing Dr. Aminu Maida, the Executive Vice Chairman/CEO, highlighted the commission’s reservations about burdening operators with additional taxes to finance the bill.

Abua stated, “We are wary of introducing new taxes as our operators are already grappling with existing tax obligations.”

In alignment with NCC’s stance, the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), through its chairman Zacch Adedeji, conveyed similar concerns through Matthew Osanekwu, emphasizing that imposing new taxes and levies on businesses to support the bill could impose undue strain on enterprises.

Both NCC and FIRS advocated for exploring alternative funding sources, suggesting that financing could be sourced from the national budget instead.
