The Association of Licensed Telecommunications Operators of Nigeria (ALTON) has advised MTN to first pay the disputed NGN 50 million in taxes to resolve the impasse with Kogi state government, CommunicationsWeek reported. Gbengba Adebayo, chairman of ALTON, said it was necessary for MTN to pay the Social Services Contribution Levy (SSCL) to the state revenue agency first and seek legal redress in court afterwards. Adebayo advised both parties to consider the national interest and always explore dialogue or seek legal resolution of contentious matters.
