MTN Ghana seeks Supreme Court review of SMP declaration

7 Sep 2020

MTN Ghana has filed an application with the country’s Supreme Court seeking a review of its designation as a significant market power (SMP) operator by the National Communications Authority (NCA). The announcement comes after the High Court of Justice (Commercial Division) issued a judgement on 1 September dismissing the company’s legal challenge that the regulator’s decision did not meet the requirements of procedural fairness. In a statement, MTN Ghana said it had taken note of the ruling and acknowledges the role of the NCA in promoting fair competition, but ‘regretfully our concerns remain unsolved’.
