Breaking: MTN Nigeria closes shops nationwide

By: dayan (M) |Time : September 04, 2019, 07:04:00 PM
South Africa owned telecommunications giant, MTN has announced the closure of all its shops in Nigeria.

This may not be unconnected with the threat by some Nigerians to reciprocate the Xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa.

There had been series of attacks on Nigerians and their businesses in South Africa.


An action which the minister of Foreign Affairs Geoffrey Onyeama says the South African government was not doing enough to quell.

The attacks by South Africans also led to an attempt by some Nigerians to raze some South African owned companies in Nigeria on Tuesday, including MTN, Dstv and Shoprite.

In a message to its subscribers on Wednesday, MTN Nigeria announced the closure of its shops and the operation of only its online platforms.

”Yello! Our shops are unavailable today. You can reach us on Twitter- @MTN180,, chat on MyMTN App. For Call Center dial 180. Thank you.

MTN makes hundreds of millions of dollars ANNUALLY from Nigeria. The company has made BILLIONS of dollars from Nigeria since it came into the country. They operated freely without any fears or dangers FOR YEARS.

But little Nigerian "spaza shops" in South Africa are constantly attacked there.

Methinks that Nigeria should seriously think about putting some strains on this company as a countermeasure to the South African wickedness.

Nigeria should think in terms of "post MTN era". We already have other cellphone operators in Nigeria, so MTN is not irreplaceable.

I do think two wrongs can't make a right. The South Africans responsible for xenophobic attacks are blacks, owners of MTN and other big companies in Nigeria are White South Africans.
