MTN apologises for ‘series of unfortunate events’ after agreeing to pay fine.

MTN Nigeria has released a statement after it agreed to settle the fine with the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) over failing to disconnect unregistered sim cards.

It will pay $1.67bn over three years.

Echoing the title of a collection of books by Lemony Snicket MTN Nigeria said:

MTN Nigeria once again offers its most sincere apologies for the series of unfortunate events that led to the imposition of the fine.

It was of critical importance to reach a solution that would be of universal benefit to all stakeholders given the importance of the ICT industry in Nigeria and its tremendous impact on socio-economic growth. Along with the authorities, we believe that has been achieved.”
