In accordance with its powers under the Nigerian Communications Act (NCA) 2003 to grant and renew licenses, promote fair competition, and develop the Communications Industry, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has temporarily suspended the issuance of licenses to operators in three categories.

The Commission, in a brief notice, informed all stakeholders of a temporary suspension on the issuance of new licenses in the Interconnect Exchange Licence, Mobile Virtual Network Operator Licence, and Value Added Service Aggregator Licence.

“This temporary suspension is necessary to enable the Commission to conduct a thorough review of several key areas within these categories, including the current level of competition, market saturation, and current market dynamics.

“The public is invited to note that during the suspension period commencing on 17th of May, 2024, new applications for the aforementioned licences will not be accepted. This is without prejudice to pending applications before the Commission, which will be considered on their merits.

“Any inquiries or clarifications in respect of this Suspension Notice should be forwarded to,” the commission explained in a statement by Reuben Muoka, its Director of Public Affairs.
