He said that customers should be obligated to pay their bills to enjoy uninterrupted services from the company at all times.
He said that the mass movement of people to certain locations within the metropolis had affected their infrastructure and there was a need for enumeration in such areas to be able to serve the people better.
The Head, Cooperate Communication of the company, Mrs. Saratu Aliyu, said that money recovered from the promo would be invested back into the company`s network to upgrade and to expand the network infrastructure.
“You will agree with me that there are expansions in almost everywhere, buildings are being erected and demands are getting higher and we also have to catch up and that is why we have this promo, ” Aliyu said.
