A public notice endorsed by the Director, Public Affairs at NCC, Mr. Reuben Muoka, and available to 
ITREALMS, said that weekend that the temporary suspension was to enable the commission offer fair competition.


He also said that the Nigerian Communications Act (NCA) 2003, empowers NCC to grant and renew licences, promote fair competition and develop the Communications Industry.

NCC, therefore, informed all stakeholders of a temporary suspension on issuance of new licences in the following categories:

1. Interconnect Exchange Licence

2. Mobile Virtual Network Operator Licence

3. Value Added Service Aggregator Licence

Additionally, Muoka said that this temporary suspension was necessary to enable the Commission to conduct a thorough review of several key areas within these categories, including the current level of competition, market saturation and current market dynamics.

He pointed out that during the suspension period which commenced on 17th of May, 2024, new application for the aforementioned licences will not be accepted.

"This is without prejudice to pending applications before the Commission which will be considered on their merits," he said.

Urging any enquiries or clarifications in respect of this suspension notice to forward an email to: licensing@ncc.gov.ng.
