“We Must Not Scare MTN Away From Nigeria” – Adebayo Shittu Warn Nigerians

The Communication Minister, Adebayo Shittu has warned Nigeria not to scare away MTN. He said this as lawmakers investigate alleged illegal money transfers just three months after the government fined Africa’s biggest telecoms firm over $1 billion.
“Nobody will say that MTN is not important to Nigeria – we must encourage them, we must not scare them away from Nigeria,” Shittu told Reuters in an interview, conducted on Friday.
“The presumption is that they are innocent and we pray they remain innocent,” Shittu said, referring to the investigation. “They must stay.”
MTN, the largest mobile phone firm in Nigeria, threatened to pull out of the country last year during a dispute over unregistered SIM cards before the government agreed to reduce a settlement on the issue by nearly 70 percent to $1 billion, Reuters reports.
The company now faces another potentially hefty penalty if an investigation by Nigeria’s upper house of parliament finds evidence that MTN Group Ltd illegally transferred $13.9 billion out of the West African country between 2006 and 2016, as alleged.
MTN has said it did not break Nigeria’s currency transfer rules.

  1. I’m the proprietor of JustCBD label (justcbdstore.com) and am planning to develop my wholesale side of business. I am hoping anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance . I thought that the very best way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd retail stores. I was really hoping if anyone could recommend a qualified website where I can buy CBD Shops B2B Marketing List I am currently examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the most suitable choice and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?

  2. Spot on with this write-up, I seriously believe that this site needs far more attention. I’ll probably be back again to read through more, thanks for the info!

  3. Next time I read a blog, I hope that it won’t disappoint me as much as this particular one. After all, I know it was my choice to read, but I really believed you would probably have something helpful to say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something that you could fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.

  4. Right here is the perfect web site for anybody who wants to understand this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic that’s been written about for years. Great stuff, just excellent!

  5. After I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment. Is there a way you can remove me from that service? Cheers!

  6. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before but after going through some of the posts I realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m certainly happy I came across it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back frequently!
