The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) says the interconnect debt dispute between MTN Nigeria Communications Plc and Globacom Limited has been amicably resolved.

NCC’s Director of Public Affairs, Dr Reuben Muoka disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.

Muoka said in accordance with this resolution, the disconnection approval granted to MTN by NCC for the disconnection of Globacom had been withdrawn.

According to him, 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.

“The Commission reiterates that strict adherence to the terms and conditions of licenses, particularly those delineated in interconnection agreements, is imperative for all Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and other licensees within the telecommunications industry.

“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.

“The commission also want the MNOs to adopt 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.
