Telecommunication companies in Nigeria are hit hard due to the disconnection of over 72 million telephone lines in Nigeria on Monday, April 4, 2022.
The losses run into billions of naira , according to telecom experts who said the biggest losers in the government directive are the telcos.
The firms rely on the sales of airtime for revenue and the directive is a direct blow to their major source of income.
