MTN Ghana, has expressed disappointment in the High Court’s ruling on the suit it filed against the National Communications Authority (NCA).
The company however did not clarify if it will seek a review or an appeal, except to say that, it will “explore all available options and next steps in this process”.
The Commercial Division of the High Court on Tuesday, September 1, 2020, dismissed a request by MTN to secure a court order to quash its classification as a Significant Market Power (SMP) by the NCA.
This was after the industry regulator had declared MTN as a Significant Market Power, and said that its dominance in the market space negatively impacted competition as it influenced consumer choice.
the telecommunications company indicated that although it “respects the decision of the High Court and has full confidence in the Ghanaian judiciary”, it is still unsatisfied, as their “concerns remain unresolved”.
“Having had our day in court, we will refrain from making further statements or comments on this
matter at this time, while we explore all available options and next steps in this process”.
It further pledged to “keep customers, shareholders and stakeholders abreast of any material development in this matter”.
