Confirming this development, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) through its Director, Public Affairs, Mr. Reuben Muoka, informed ITREALMS that the commission was pleased to announce that the interconnect debt dispute between MTN Nigeria Communications Plc. (MTN) and Globacom Limited (Globacom) has been amicably resolved.

He also that in accordance with this resolution, the disconnection approval granted to MTN for the disconnection of Globacom has now been withdrawn.

Following its initial public notice, the Commission, he said, with the aim of mitigating any potential disruptions to subscribers undertook further regulatory intervention, by mediating between the parties and facilitating the reconciliation process.

Therefore, he said that NCC has reiterated 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, as well as adopting a transparent approach towards industry indebtedness.

As said by him this statement serves as a reminder of the Commission's commitment to fostering a stable and compliant telecommunications ecosystem in Nigeria.
