Globacom Nigeria has debunked reports making the rounds claiming that the giant telecom establishment is owing a competing brand, MTN, a phantom of debt.

The company described the false tale as a fallacy.

According to investigations, the story is a campaign of calumny against Nigeria’s fully indigenous telecommunications company that has redefined access to communications at all levels.

A source informed us that what was due in payment was N1.6 billion, and the said amount had been paid without any controversy, wondering where the peddlers of the fake news got their information from. Could this have been another case of deliberate falsehood and ineptitude?


“It is either the act is deliberate or gross ineptitude on the part of the detractors, who find it difficult to do ordinary cross checking of facts. Glo does not owe MTN, not anybody,” the source said.

Nigerians have therefore, called on the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and President Bola Tinubu, to intervene and stop the witch-hunting against Nigeria’s only solely owned telecommunications company.

It is on record that Glo changed the GSM billing procedures when introduced the pay per second form of billing, thereby cutting the monopoly of the other foreign companies operating in Nigeria.
