Interconnect Debt: We Will Comply With NCC’s Directive-MTN
Yinka Olajoyetan, Lagos 
Leading Nigeria telecommunication firm, MTN Nigeria has said it will comply with the directive from the Nigerian Communications Commission’s (NCC) on the MTN and Glo interconnect debt issue.
Recall that the NCC had, on January 8, 2024, published a pre-disconnection notice informing subscribers of the approval granted MTN Nigeria Communications Plc to commence the phased disconnection of Globacom Limited with effect from January 18, 2024, due to long-standing interconnection debt dispute between the parties.
Chief executive officer, MTN Nigeria, Karl Toriola, in an interview on Arise TV, said: “Suffice it to say that we have between the NCC and the CBN, the most developed regulatory bodies who arbitrate on such matters and whatever we do in that dispute or that discourse will be in line with what the NCC dictates.
“The NCC is very competent in addressing such issues; they’ve come out with authorization for disconnection and that has been put on hold to give an opportunity to address these issues.
“But what I can say is that MTN will always act in the most professional, most compliant manner, and we will not do anything that hasn’t been authorised by our licensing conditions or the regulator.”
