 The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has denied a publication in an online media entitled “Govt renews MTN Nigeria licence amid 20 years of GSM Phones” to the effect that the mobile operating licence of MTN has been renewed by the Commission for another period of 10 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 September 1, 2021.”


The Commission in a statement signed by its Director, Public Affairs, Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde stated that, while MTN Nigeria has applied for the renewal of the Unified Access Service Licence ((UASL) granted to it by the Commission, the application has not been approved as it was still undergoing required regulatory processes.


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