Telecommunication Giants, MTN has dragged the sector regulator, NCA to court over what the company terms as unfair attempts by the regulator to break it’s near monopoly.
MTN described the government’s move as “unfair” and said the decision to go to court, was a “difficult” move.

According to a statement signed by the Minister of Communications, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, the new policies were meant to correct the imbalance in the telecommunication market.
