Mr Chijioke Ezeh, the National Coordinator, Wireless Application Service Providers Association of Nigeria (WASPAN) has called for favourable revenue share for Value Added Service (VAS) providers in the country.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Lagos, Ezeh said that the current revenue sharing formula was not favourable to VAS providers.

NAN reports that there is currently a revenue share of 60 by 40 per cent, between the telecommunications network providers and the VAS providers.

He said that such revenue share might run down the businesses of VAS companies, which in turn would affect job creation.

Ezeh called on the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to look into the area of revenue-sharing among mobile operators and VAS providers in its proposed regulations to guide the sector.

According to him, more revenue should be given to VAS providers, because they are the content providers and they have to be commended for that.

“The revenue shares need to be more favourable to Nigerian companies as opposed to the current scenario where it is not so.”

The WASPAN coordinator added that the most prominent challenge in the VAS sector was the absence of clear-cut laws to protect Nigerian companies in the business.

He said that not all the Mobile Value Added Service (MVAS) companies could match the financial might of some of the foreign companies.

Ezeh said that WASPAN was aware of the problems illegal deduction of subscribers' monies and had joined forces with the networks providers to stop such.

WASPAN is a consortium of Nigerian MVAS firms that are professionally committed to providing top-notch services both to the mobile networks and Nigerian mobile phone users. (NAN)
