MTN is yet to renew its Universal Access Service License (UASL), the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has said.
This is contained in a statement by Ikechukwu Adinde, Director, Public Affairs, NCC, in Abuja.
”The attention of the NCC is drawn to a publication in an online media titled: “Govt renews MTN Nigeria licence amid 20 years of GSM Phones.
”The publication was to the effect that the mobile operating licence of MTN had been renewed by the Commission for another period of ten years.
“The online publication, which cited regulatory filings by the 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 licence for another 10 years with effect from Sept. 1, 2021.”
The Commission said that while MTN Nigeria has applied for the renewal of the UASL, 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,” the NCC said.
