Court says DStv can charge rate of choice

A Federal High Court in Lagos has thrown out the suit seeking to prevent an increase in the subscription rate of the services of MultiChoice Nigeria Limited, the operator of DStv.

The presiding judge, Justice C.J. Aneke, on Thursday, while ruling on the preliminary objection raised by MultiChoice, held that the plaintiffs had no reasonable cause of action.

He adjudged the suit as an abuse of court processes.

The judge aligned with the argument of MultiChoice’s counsel, Mr. Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN), that the court lacked the power to regulate the price of services that a business is offering to its customers.

Aneke held that any customer who is displeased with MultiChoice’s terms reserved the right to opt out of the agreement.
