Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, has waded into the trade dispute between commercial banks and mobile network operator, MTN Nigeria.
Pantami, in a tweet now wrote, “On the fallout between @MTNNG and some banks on USSD services today, I engaged with both regulators, the Governor of @cenbank and EVC @NgComCommission.
“We have reached an advance stage of resolving the issues, for the services to be restored to our citizens. Many thanks!”
Recall commercial banks early today disconnected MTN customers from banking channels including the Unstructured Supplementary Service Data and banking apps.
MTN customers had lamented being unable to recharge their MTN lines using USSD and other banking channels like the bank apps.
