More Trouble for MTN as NCC Plans New Sanctions

More trouble looms ahead for MTN Nigeria as the The Nigerian Communications Commission according to The Sun is planning another round of sanction for the telecoms company.

The SUN says NCC may soon stop all regulatory services to MTN Nigeria over the N1.4 trillion (about $5.2bn) fine imposed on the network operator.

Although, the regulator is yet to come out with any statement on the matter, but it’s believed that MTN may bow to the order or face more technical sanctions.

MTN was slammed N1. 4trillion for failing to obey NCC directives to cut off 5. 1million subscribers who were not properly registered on its network.

According to the regulator, by so doing, MTN Nigeria is undermining efforts by the Federal Government to tackle the security challenges and the war on terror and allied crimes.

Apart from the N1.4trillion fine, all the operators were equally found guilty of contravening NCC directives on pre-registered SIM cards as well as incomplete and improperly registered SIM cards across all GSM networks, an offence that cost them another N120.4million fine.
