Buhari is Repressing Human Rights and Getting Away With It – By Kolawole Olaniyan

The Ghanaian subsidiary of Africa-focused telecommunications giant MTN Group has lost a legal battle in the West African country, seeking to stop a regulator from designating it as significant market operator which requires “corrective action”.

A high court in Ghana dismissed MTN’s challenge and sided with the National Communications Authority, an agency which regulates the country’s telecommunications sector.

The National Communications Authority, which has made no secret of its plans to reduce MTN’s market dominance in Ghana, had initially brought the action against MTN in June, forcing the company to mount a legal challenge that was eventually dismissed on September 1.

MTN says that it maintains that the ruling is unfair from a procedural standpoint and that the company “would explore all available options and next steps in this process.”
