The NCC and a Price Floor for Internet Access in Nigeria: Competition Law Matters Arising – Stephen Oluwaseun Oke

This essay seeks to evaluate the propriety of the relatively recent attempt by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to introduce a price floor in the market for internet access in Nigeria.
