Nigerian telecommunications company Globacom (GLO) has strongly denied reports claiming that they owe interconnect charges to rival MTN.

GLO has called these claims “completely false” and a result of inaccurate fact-checking. Earlier this week, a public notice from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) was circulated online, threatening to partially disconnect GLO due to unpaid debts.

The notice, signed by NCC Director of Public Affairs Reuben Muoka, stated that GLO’s failure to pay off a debt of N1.6 billion despite multiple attempts had led to this action.

However, GLO, in a statement to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, has now refuted any debt owed to MTN.

“We are not owing MTN any interconnect charges,” the spokesman added, adding that adequate cross-checking should have been done before such claims were made.

The official went on to say that GLO was a pioneer in the telecoms business, shattering international corporations’ monopolies with their revolutionary pay-per-second pricing scheme. He called the article an effort to damage the reputation of Nigeria’s biggest indigenous telecoms business.
