In a statement signed by its Senior Manager, External Relations, Funso Aina, the MTN’s Chief Corporate Relations Officer, Tobechukwu Okigbo, said the successful resolution of the fine was the outcome of active collaboration between the NCC and MTN.

He said: “We are very pleased to have completed the payment of the N330 billion negotiated settlement with the NCC. We are particularly gratified to be in a position to have fully met the terms of the settlement within the agreed time frame. I would like to thank the NCC for their constructive and collaborative approach to this issue, and believe that we emerge from it with a stronger relationship, focused on ensuring maximum value is delivered to our people, from a strong and growing telecoms sector.”

Corroborating, a source at the NCC also confirmed the payment. According to the source, MTN paid the money into the Treasury Single Account (TSA) account with the Central Bank of Nigeria (NCC). http://www.tectono-business.com/2016/02/contemporary-step-by-step-guide-to.html

The fine, initially put at N1.04 trillion before it was reduced to N330bn, landed on MTN’s back in October, 2015, when the biggest telecom operator flouted some of the country’s SIM registration rules.

After six months of negotiation and re-negotiation over the fine which led to the reduction to N330 billion, it was agreed that MTN would pay a balance of N280bn in six tranches. This was in addition to the “goodwill” payment of N50 billion earlier made by MTN to the government.

Fellow Nigerians, are you aware that our crude oil will soon become useless? Yes, it will, in no distant time, become valueless owing to the fact that the countries that rely on it as their only source of energy are developing more affordable alternative sources of energy. When this finally happens, what will we do? How are we currently preparing for this imminent economic doom? Which other sector will continue to stabilize our economy? Nigerians, the only solution is developing the agricultural sector. In fact, this is the only solution. Very soon, the major source of revenue will become agriculture and agro-exports. How are you positioning yourself to play big in agro-export business?

Specifically, MTN began the payment structure with the payment of N30bn into NCC’s Treasury Single Account with the Central Bank of Nigeria, 30 days from the date of the agreement dated June 10 2016. Subsequently, MTN paid N30 billion on March 31, 2017, N55 billion on March 31, 2018, N55 billion on December 31, 2018,  and on March 31, 2019, it paid N55 billion. http://www.tectono-business.com/2016/06/are-you-estate-surveyor-or-property.html

In an agreement reached by the parties involved in a way to avoid a decision likely to cripple the business interest of the operators and the commission, it was also agreed that MTN should apologise to Nigerians, subscribe to the compulsory observance of Code of Corporate Governance for Telecoms Industry, as well as undertake immediate steps to ensure its listing on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE). This has been done. (Sun)
