We Will Wait For Outcome Of MTN's Suit Before Enforcing $3.9bn Fine, Says FG

Nigeria will await the outcome of a court case filed by mobile phone operator, MTN, before any enforcement of a $3.9 billion fine against the South African firm, a spokesman for the telecommunications ministry said, on Wednesday.  "The Federal Government, NCC (regulator) or any government agent will not do anything at the expiration of the December 31 deadline that MTN had to pay the fine," the spokesman said. "Now that they (MTN) have gone to court, we will await the outcome of the case," he added.
