The Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, has debunked reports that it has renewed MTN Unified Access and Service (UASL) License for another ten years.

 

 

Recall that a media platform, not Climaxtrend had reported that the company has been granted UASL for another ten years by the FG to run its business in Nigeria.

 

But reacting to the report, in a statement issued by its Director, Public Affairs, Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, the commission said though the telecom company has applied for the renewal of its license, it is yet to be approved.

 

The statement reads, “The attention of the Nigerian Communications Commission has been drawn to a publication in an online media entitled “Govt renews MTN Nigeria license amid 20 years of GSM phones” to the effect that the mobile operating license of MTN has been renewed by the Commission for another period of ten years.

 

 

“The online publication which cited regulatory filings by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) as its source, stated that “MTN Nigeria, the nation’s largest mobile network operator (MNO), has secured regulatory approval of the renewal of its operating license for another 10 years with effect from September 1, 2021.”

 

“The Commission wishes to state that while MTN Nigeria has applied for the renewal of the Unified Access and Service (UASL) License granted to it by the Commission, the application is yet to be approved as it is still undergoing required regulatory processes.

 

 

“This statement is issued for the guidance of our general stakeholders”.
