Airtel’s Mobile Operating Licence pending renewal – NCC




The Nigeria Communication Commission(NCC) has cleared the air on the controversy making the round that Airtel’s mobile operating licence has been renewed.

Instead the commission said the process is pending. This was contained in a press statement by Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde
Director, Public Affairs of the commission.

It reads: “The attention of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has been drawn to a recent statement on an online publication credited to the Managing Director/Chief Executive Office of Airtel Nigeria, Mr. Olusegun Ogunsanya, to the effect that the mobile operating licence of Airtel has been renewed by the Commission for another period of 10 years.

“Mr. Ogunsanya was said to have made the statement while speaking in Lagos on Wednesday, July 14, 202, during the media launch of Airtel’s corporate social responsibility programme, ‘Touching Lives 6’.

“The Commission wishes to state that while Airtel Nigeria has applied for the renewal of the Unified Access Service (UASL) Licence granted to it by the Commission, the application is yet to be approved as it is still undergoing required regulatory process.”
