Actually I have been waiting for a day like this and it finally came to pass. I was so happy when I got this email from my web hosting company. I use a Nigerian web host.
The email read in part:
As a result the recent change of policy by Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NIRA), the body responsibile for coordinating and managing .NG domain names.
TRANSFER of .NG domain name from one registrar to another is now free, the new policy will take effect from August 1, 2018.
As soon as this policy goes into effect, 1000 NGN or it's equivalent local currency will no longer be charged for transfering domain name from another registrar to Garanntor Hosting Limited.
I'm particularly happy because I have had to pay for my domain to be transferred from one registrar to another. I hope you guys enjoyed this.
