The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has said Airtel Nigeria’s application for the renewal of the Unified Access Service License (UASL) is yet to be approved by the commission.

NCC, in a statement on Sunday, said the telecom company’s licence renewal application is still undergoing the required regulatory process.

“The Commission wishes to state that while Airtel Nigeria has applied for the renewal of the Unified Access Service License (UASL) granted to it by the Commission, the application is yet to be approved as it is still undergoing required regulatory process”, the statement signed by NCC’s director of public affairs, Dr Ikechukwu Adinde, said.

Adinde said the statement was issued to clarify what was credited to the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Airtel Nigeria, Mr Segun Ogunsanya, to the effect that the mobile operating license of Airtel has been renewed by the Commission for another period of ten years.

Mr Ogunsanya was said to have made the statement while speaking in Lagos on Wednesday, July 14, 202, during the media launch of Airtel’s corporate social responsibility programme, ‘Touching Lives 6’.
