MTN Nigeria Communications Plc (MTN Nigeria) has issued a statement to clarify the news in the media regarding the dispute with banks and our customers’ inability to purchase airtime using banking channels.

In a statement made available to Brand Spur Nigeria, the telecoms giant stated that,

“The sale of airtime through our banking channel partners was temporarily suspended by the banks on April 2, 2021, due to a dispute over the reduction in the cost of sales associated with the channel. However, services were restored on Sunday, April 4, 2021, with customers able to access all services following the intervention by our regulators.”
