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.
