NCC withdraws approval for Glo overload promotions

The Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, has ordered the management of Globacom Ltd to immediately suspend the implementation of the Glo Overload Promotion from its network.

The regulatory body said the suspension became necessary given the fact that Globacom Nigeria Limited has been implementing the regulatory approval in breach.

The Commission in a letter signed by the Executive Commissioner, Stakeholders Management, Mr Sunday Dare and Director Consumer Affairs, Abdullahi Maikano on behalf of the Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, Professor, Umar Garba Danbatta drew the attention of Globacom management to the recent media campaign on the “Glo Free Data Offer”.

The NCC letter dated 10th August 2017 with reference number NCC/Glo/ F76/vol/ 13/2017, said the action of the telecom company was “a clear departure from the terms and condition of the approval given for the “Glo Overload Promotion”.

The letter which was addressed to the Chief Executive Officer of Globacom reads: ” please refer to the Commission’s letter of 14th March, 2017 conveying approval for your Glo Overload Promotion.

“It has however come to our notice that Globacom Nig Ltd has been implementing the above regulatory approval in breach especially given your recent media campaign on the “Glo Free Data Offer”, a clear departure from the terms and condition of the approval given for the Glo Overload Promotion.

“Consequent upon the above, you are hereby directed to suspend implementation of the Glo Overload Promotion from your network with immediate effect.”

The regulatory body further invited the management of Globacom to a meeting on the issue against Thursday 17, August.
