Nigeria’s leading telecommunications operator, MTN Nigeria has described as ‘patently untrue’ the allegations made against the company in two fresh affidavits filed in support of a suit by the Ekiti and Osun State chapters of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) against the company.
The industry regulator, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) was also joined as a defendant in the suit.
MTN’s Corporate Services Executive, Mr. Wale Goodluck, in a statement in Lagos made available to ITRealms Online, said the allegations made in an affidavit sworn to by a former General Manager of Nigerian Telecommunications Limited (NITEL), Solomon Ogundele, were odious and reprehensible.
“MTN Nigeria is not at liberty to comment on the details of the matter of PDP V MTN&NCC, as they are sub judice. However, we reject in no uncertain terms the allegations made by the plaintiffs in this case and their agents. Not only are they patently untrue, they have absolutely no bearing on the issues in this case. They are designed to distract and muddy the waters. MTN Nigeria will make a detailed response to these odious and reprehensible allegations through normal court processes,” Goodluck said.
