Lagos - The ban imposed on three major telecoms firms in the country- MTN, Glo and Aitel, by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) earlier in the year has been extended, reports The Nation.
NCC’s Executive Commissioner, Stakeholders Management, Okwchukwu Itanyi, who spoke in Lagos, said the commission has not lifted ban, which was expected to have lapsed in March.
He, however, did not say why the ban was extended and for how long the extension will last.
The commission had in February 2014 imposed a fine of N467million on the three carriers and further barred them from adding new subscribers through the sale and activation of new subscriber identity modules (SIMs).
