Major Clap Back: MTN Hires Ex-US Attorney To Take On The Nigerian Government

According to reports via Quartz, MTN has hired Eric Holder, the former US attorney general to help fight against the fine imposed by the NCC for failing to disconnect unregistered sim cards.

 For those wondering, Eric has an impressive track record:

According to Wikipedia:
Eric Holder, Jr. served as the 82nd Attorney General of the United States, from 2009 to 2015. Holder is the first African-American to hold the position of U.S. Attorney General.  He previously served as a judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia and as United States Attorney for the District of Columbia (Source: Wikipedia)

Considering the money that must have been spent by MTN (We know that Eric Holder’s fee will be on the high side), It will be a huge blow if they eventually lose this case.

We would have to wait until the 18th of March to find out if this move will help MTN.

    I thought they had settled this their case. Well that aside, isn’t there no qualified lawyer in nigeria or the whole of west africa that mtn had to higher one from the united states?(making common sense). Well i hope this one does not bommerang on them. I wish them all the best. And by the way the lawyer does look smart I must confess.

    Hmm. Speaking of the lawyer’s fees, are you sure it won’t be just wise to cough out NCC’s money and be done with it?
