TELECOMMUNICATIONS service provider, Etisalat Nigeria, has refuted claims that it filled multiple suits against the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and MTN Nigeria on acquisition of Visafone Communications.

Etisalat, in a statement made available to journalists yesterday, claimed that the insinuations rose largely from a press statement reportedly issued by MTN Nigeria and published by some print media organisations (not The Guardian) and online media platforms under the headline, “MTN confirms legal fireworks with Etisalat over Visafone.

The statement read, among others: “Our attention has been drawn to misleading insinuations making the rounds in the media that Etisalat Nigeria has filed multiple suits against the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and MTN Nigeria. The insinuations have arisen largely from a press statement reportedly issued by MTN Nigeria and published by some print media organisations and online media platforms under the headline “MTN confirms legal fireworks with Etisalat over Visafone.”

“Etisalat Nigeria is compelled to set the facts straight on the intent and status of the legal action it instituted against the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and MTN Nigeria in July 2015 due to the misrepresentation of facts about the case as contained in some print and online media reports of Wednesday, February 9, 2016.”
