MTN Nigeria Communications Plc has received partial approval from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to disconnect Globacom, citing non-settlement of interconnect charges. The disclosure was made by Dr. Reuben Muoka, the NCC’s Director of Public Affairs, in a public notice issued in Abuja on Monday. Muoka emphasized that Globacom had been duly informed of MTN’s application and was afforded the opportunity to provide comments and present its case.

“The commission, having examined the application and circumstances surrounding the indebtedness, determined that Globacom does not have sufficient or justifiable reason for non-payment of the interconnect charges.”

He noted that the partial approval authorizing the disconnection of Globacom by MTN aligns with the provisions of Section 100 of the NCC Act, 2003. Additionally, he pointed out that it is in accordance with Paragraph 9 of the guidelines outlining the procedure for granting approval to disconnect Telecommunications Operators, as stipulated in the year 2012.

“At the expiration of 10 days from the date of this notice, subscribers of Globacom will no longer be able to make calls to MTN, but will be able to receive calls.

“The partial disconnection, however, will allow in-bound calls to Globacom network.

“Please note that this disconnection will subsist until otherwise determined by the commission, he noted.
