Buhari To Decide On MTN Nigeria's Record $3.9bn Fine - Minister

President Muhammadu Buhari will make the final decision on a $3.9 billion fine on the mobile service provider, MTN, the telecommunications minister said on Tuesday.

Adebayo Shittu also told journalists that MTN might be advised to withdraw a court case filed against the fine.

“If they withdraw it creates a better environment, an environment where there is no stress or pressure on either side,” Reuters quoted the minister as saying on the fine imposed on the firm last year.
