Hi Adeola
I am not sure of Glo and Airtel but I use MTN and Etisalat
For Etisalat, text and send STOP to 2442. You should get a message back with further instruction on what to do.
For MTN, text and send HELP to 2442 also. You should also get a message back with further instruction to follow.
However, it seems some of the SMS have to be unsubscribed to individually.
Best!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION!!!

The Nigeria Communications Commission NCC has ordered all telecoms services providers in Nigeria to implement the DO NOT DISTURB directive it gave them or face the full wrought of the law.

Do Not Disturb (DND) means that once you send

STOP to 2442 on any network

you will never receive unsolicited calls and sms from advertising companies asking you to subscribe for one thing or the other.

NCC ordered them to broadcast this code to all their customers so they will be aware of it. But trust them na…they refused.

I’ve already blocked those useless unsolicited calls and sms from my lines. All I did was to send

STOP to 2442

Please let’s help spread this info since they don’t want people to know.
