Nokia Office In Lekki, Lagos Has Been Sealed Off By NCC

Yes there was a Nokia office in lagos!

NCC has sealed off the Nokia office in lekki, lagos. The office was responsible for making Telecommunications equipment for major telecom service provider before it was sealed off for failure to pay N2million sales and installation license under the category.

Does it mean  Nokia has been operating without licence for years? well, according to the enforcement unit of the telecom regulatory authority, Salisu Abdul:

“The NCC is the sole regulator of the telecom sector in Nigeria, and one of our functions is the issuance of telecom licenses. In one of our monitoring activities, we discovered that Nokia-Alcatel has not obtained the required authorization to operate their services in this country. “As a matter of fairness and transparency, we decided to pay them a visit. We, however, discovered that they only applied for a license about three months back and are yet to complete the process for the license. We have decided to seal off the premises of Nokia until they obtain the requisite authorization. “The license is barely two million naira to obtain. We have sealed off the premises, and we will not open it till they comply. The penalty is dependent on the number of years they’ve been on ground.
If Nokia has been operating for years without licence that means something is wrong somewhere, the fine will be base on the number of years they have been operating in Nigeria.
