The President while explaining the reason behind the fine imposed on the telecom giant said the concern of the Federal Government was purely security.

He said that this would be his first time to speak on the issue as the president of Nigeria.

He said that the concern of Nigeria was basically on the security of lives and property of the people in the midst of terrorism.

He also hinted that the court action by MTN slowed the intervention of the government as it could not have interfered on the matter before the court.

He said: “This is the first time I will personally as a president be making a public comment about it.

“The concern of the federal government is basically on the security and not the fine imposed on MTN.

“You know how the unregistered GSM are being used by terrorists.

“And between 2009 and today, at least 10,000 Nigerians were killed by Boko Haram.

“That was why NCC asked MTN, Glo and the rest of them to register GSM. Unfortunately, MTN was very, very slow and contributed to the casualties”, President Buhari alleged.
