Airtel’s Mobile Operating Licence Pending Renewal – NCC

Nigerian Communications Commission,

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has refuted the claims of Airtel Nigeria that it has renewed it’s mobile operating license for the next ten years.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by the Director of Public Affairs, Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde, which says, “our attention has been drawn to a recent statement on an online publication credited to the Managing Director/Chief Executive Office of Airtel Nigeria, Mr. Olusegun Ogunsanya, to the effect that the mobile operating licence of Airtel has been renewed by the Commission for another period of 10 years.


Mr. Ogunsanya was said to have made the statement while speaking in Lagos on Wednesday, July 14, 202, during the media launch of Airtel’s corporate social responsibility programme, ‘Touching Lives 6’.

The Commission wishes to state that while Airtel Nigeria has applied for the renewal of the Unified Access Service (UASL) Licence granted to it by the Commission, the application is yet to be approved as it is still undergoing required regulatory process
