MTN Responds To Media Reports On PDP Lawsuit

MTN’s attention has been drawn to reports in the media over a lawsuit purportedly instituted against MTN Nigeria Communications Limited by the former Governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola and the Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) seeking to revoke MTN’s license.

Speaking on the issue, MTN’s Corporate Services Executive, Akinwale Goodluck, observed that the company was yet to be served with court processes related to the matter. He also stated categorically that   MTN did not in any way act contrary to the terms and conditions of its operating license with respect to the Investigative Panel (IP) set up by the National Judicial Council (NJC) over the 2010 Appeal Court contest of gubernatorial election results in Osun State.

“We are constrained to speak on this issue because we are yet to be served with any court summons. When this is done, we will respond appropriately. Suffice it to say that MTN has a stellar reputation for ethical conduct. Therefore, we take grave exception to any insinuation of unethical or improper conduct against us. MTN acts responsibly at all times, and in accordance with relevant laws. This unshakeable corporate principle guided our actions. Indeed, we provided all the necessary records to the requisite security agencies in accordance with laid down procedure” he said.

Further setting the records straight, Goodluck said that the company is apolitical and non partisan and as such it has no reason or motivation to act in any unethical or untoward manner as alleged.
