Don’t Jubilate Yet, MTN Tells Subscribers Over Debt Cancellation


MTN Nigeria has asked Nigerians owing the company not to jubilate yet over cancellation of debt.

It was gathered that subscribers who had taken airtime or data on loans from MTN believed the telecom operator deliberately canceled their debts, and had gone to social media to jubilate and appreciate the telecom company.

For instance, a subscriber named Ada, wrote on her WhatsApp status, saying, “Debt has been paid. MTN debtors Check your account, MTN don clear una gbese.”

However, the subscribers may have to pay back the debt on their accounts as the initial debt cancellation was due to an error in MTN system.

Meanwhile, a response from, an official of MTN, revealed that subscribers will still have to pay for their debts, adding that, “Users would still be responsible for paying the ostensibly cleared bills even after MTN fixes the problem that caused the debts to vanish from their accounts.”

He explained that the disappearance of debts in the subscribers’ accounts was a glitch, meaning that the subscribers would still have to pay the supposed cleared debts once MTN rectified the error
