MTN deserves the sanction


SIR: Permit me to add my voice on the recent sanction imposed on MTN Nigeria by National Communications Commission (NCC). I am one of the victims of MTN’s treatment. I am a subscriber with phone number 08035887615 which I bought in August, 2003. Since then I have had my phone tossed three times and on every occasion, I have always gone to MTN to recover the line.

On August 24, 2015 I got a message to go to MTN office nearest to me to re-register, this was sequel to NCC instructions that all Network providers should update their subscribers data and I completed mine on the same day with the MTN sending a message to me that the process was completed and N2000 credit was given to me.
However on December 26, I got another text from MTN to go to the nearest centre and capture my fingerprint and picture. I obeyed and did the same on December 29, 2015 but again on January 4, 2016, I got another message and call from MTN that my data was not complete and I should visit their nearest centre which I have not done. I have asked MTN to disconnect the line, after all I have another Network line that doesn’t trouble me like MTN and their line is not free.
My case with MTN is one of thousands of Nigerian subscribers for which MTN has no regard and treats badly. It is appropriate, therefore, the sanction given to the company and in fact, it deserves to be punished more than the recent fine.
