The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has revealed the interconnect debt face-off between MTN Nigeria Communications Plc. (MTN) and Globacom Limited (Globacom) have been settled.
Reuben Mouka, the Director of Public Affairs of the NCC, in a statement, said, in line with this resolution, the disconnection assent granted to MTN for the disconnection of Globacom has been withdrawn.
The statement reads, “Following its initial public notice, the Commission, with the aim of mitigating any potential disruptions to subscribers, undertook further regulatory intervention by mediating between the parties and facilitating the reconciliation process.”
He also said NCC had also employed measures to prevent future occurrences.
The statement added, “In order to proactively address and prevent future instances of interconnect indebtedness within the industry, the Commission will be requesting relevant records and regular updates from MNOs, as well as adopting a transparent approach towards industry indebtedness.
“This statement serves as a reminder of the Commission’s commitment to fostering a stable and compliant telecommunications ecosystem in Nigeria.”
