MTN & NCC agree on N333bn fine

The Telecoms giant, MTN has finally agreed to pay N333 billion ($1.7 billion) to the federal government for failing to comply with a directive to disconnect 5.1million improperly registered lines before the deadline given to telecoms operators in the country. The sum was agreed upon after eight months of negotiation.

The group, in a statement on Friday, said it will also ensure the listing of its shares in the Nigerian Stock Exchange.

 “The relationship between MTN, the Nigerian government and the Nigerian Communications Commission has been restored and strengthened,” he said in his resignation letter.
