“I think we can consider introducing a negligible telecom surcharge to be entirely borne by the initiator of a call in order to protect the poor and vulnerable amongst us. 
“ We could structure it to only take effect after the third minute of talk. 
“Some analyses have indicated that the government could earn about N100 billion per annum from this alone.
