MTN Pays FG N110bn Over Sim Registration

MTN Nigeria has paid a total of N110bn into the coffers of the government out of the N330bn imposed on it by the Nigerian Communications Commission.
Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC, Prof. Umar Danbatta, disclosed this at a workshop on Code of Corporate Governance organised by the commission in Kano on Thursday.

He also disclosed that the commission was rejigging its regulatory activities to ensure that telecommunications’ consumers get value for their money.

NCC had in October 2015 imposed a fine of N1.04tn on MTN for irregular registration of subscribers. However, after prolonged negotiation with both the regulatory agency and the Federal Government, the company had the fine reduced to N330bn.

Danbatta said the matter had been resolved with an agreement for settlement over a three-year period signed between the agency and MTN.

He said the payment was spread over a three-year period because the intention was not to snuff life out of MTN.

The NCC boss said, “Current evaluation report of the state of the industry suggests that whilst not understating the impact of other external and fiscal issues confronting the sector, that most challenges negatively affecting the health of operators in the sector today are attributable to poor governance issues.

“It is currently rejigging its regulatory oversights in the areas of ensuring that consumers get cost effective value for money spent on telecommunication services; and that service delivery by providers are qualitative and efficient.
