The recent debt cancellation status on its subscribers’ network has been referenced by mobile telecommunications company MTN as a technical malfunction.


The network provider announced this on Saturday via a tweet on its official X (previously Twitter) account.


The company emphasized that the debt status remained constant and indicated that an unforeseen error in its system resulted in the forgiveness of debt due by its network subscribers.

Recall that while many Netizens expressed joy with the debt elimination, others thought MTN had purposefully wiped their obligations.

“Debt has been paid,” stated a user named Fatai. Check your account, MTN debtors. MTN has not cleared your balance.

Ikechukwu Amara, a different user, said, “What a time to be alive.” Until I completed the process on my own, I truly believed it was a joke—my N5,000 debt has been erased.

Another X user named Too Cute stated that MTN had erased all of the outstanding debt since the company is giving away free stuff to all of its clients nationwide.

One Bukola, however, asserted that MTN could never provide something for free unless they ultimately benefited, saying, “Una dey trust company for this country.” How would MTN, which is experiencing a dip in the economy, waste so much money on Nigerians? How are they going to make it up? This one is Shege pro max for everyone to see.

In response, MTN posted on its help handle, saying, “Hey, we know that some of our customers’ xtratime debt was paid off. There was a malfunction in the system; the airtime was not cleared.

“Our support team is looking into the matter, and as soon as they have feedback, they will share it. I’m grateful,” it said.
