That was in a declaration that NCC’s Director of Public Affairs, Reuben Muoka, signed.

The Nigerian Communications Act, NCA, 2003 grants the Commission the authority to grant and renew licenses, encourage fair competition, and grow the Communications Industry. The Commission stated that the suspension was in line with this mandate.

A temporary suspension on the issue of new licences in the following categories is announced by the Commission “hereby informs all stakeholders of the statement.”

“Value Added Service Aggregator Licence,” “Mobile Virtual Network Operator Licence,” and “Interconnect Exchange Licence” are some of the classifications.

“The Commission must temporarily halt operations so that it can examine these categories’ degree of competition, market saturation, and present trends, among other critical areas.

Please be informed that new applications for the licenses stated above will not be accepted during the suspension period starting on May 17, 2024.
