NCC Fines Nigeria Telecoms N22m For Defying Ban On Promos

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has again sanctioned MTN, Globacom, Etisalat and Airtel for contravening the ban on promotions and lotteries, which it banned last year.

The four mobile service providers are to pay a total sum of N22 million only being the cumulative amount as sanctions for contravening the ban on promotions and lotteries in their respective networks as placed by the commission.

Last year, NCC fined the same four GSM operators N1.7 billion for poor quality of service on their networks. Although the operators protested the fine, they eventually paid after months of argument.

Announcing the latest sanction yesterday in Abuja, the Head, Media and Public Relations for NCC, Mr. Reuben Muoka said MTN Nigeria would pay N10 million on account of five promotions at N2 million for each promotion while Etisalat would pay N6 million for three promotions running on its network. Airtel, he said, would pay N4 million for running two promotions against the ban while Globacom would pay N2 million for one promotion.
