NCC suspends issuance of telecommunications licenses

The Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, has announced a temporary suspension of the issuance of new licenses in several categories.

The categories include interconnect exchange licenses, mobile virtual network operator licenses, and value-added service aggregator licenses.

Dr. Reuben Muoka, the Director of Public Affairs for the NCC, made this announcement in a statement on Friday in Abuja. He explained that the commission's decision is based on its authority under the Nigerian Communications Act, NCA, 2003.

“This temporary suspension is necessary to enable the commission to conduct a thorough review of several key areas within these categories, including the current level of competition, market saturation, and current market dynamics,” Muoka stated.

“The public is invited to note that during the suspension period commencing on May 17, new applications for the aforementioned licenses will not be accepted.

“This is without prejudice to pending applications before the commission, which will be considered on their merits."
