Telecommunication subscribers are kicking against a new Federal Government directive to impose a tax on telephone calls in the nation to fund free healthcare for the vulnerable.

The telecom tax equivalent of a minimum of one kobo per second for phone calls is a part of the sources of funds required to finance free healthcare for the Vulnerable Group in Nigeria.

This is, according to the National Health Insurance Authority Bill twenty-twenty-one signed by President Muhammadu Buhari last week.

This new tax is coming despite moves by telecom companies to increase the price of calls, SMS, and data by forty percent as a result of an unfavourable operating environment.
