Find Out All About MTN Ghana Court Case And NCA Brouhaha

A Accra High Court dismissed an application by telecommunications giants MTN, seeking to halt the directive of the National Communication Authority (NCA) to classify it as a significant market player in the industry on Tuesday, September 1.

This judgment paves the way for the NCA to take measures to promote competition in the sector.

The court presided over by Justice Samuel Asiedu, a Court of Appeal judge sitting with additional responsibility as a High Court judge, awarded a cost of GH¢10,000 against MTN.

The telecom operator in June, 2020 sued the NCA in court over attempts by the regulator to break up the near-monopoly of the company.

The media giant, MTN Ghana, has said that it is dissatisfied with the court ruling in the suit they filed against the National Communications Authority (NCA).

However, the telecommunication giants said it will respect the ruling.

The Company released a statement saying, it “respects the decision of the High Court and has full confidence in the Ghanaian judiciary”, despite being unsatisfied as their “concerns remain unresolved”.
