The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has allowed Nokia to re-open its Lagos office, according to reports.
NCC closed and sealed the office because Nokia had been operating for a number of years without buying sales and installation licence, which costs two million naira ($6,354).
According to a source close to the company, Nokia received permission from the NCC late on Friday to reopen the office.
The lack of a licence seems to have been a major error on Nokia’s part as telecoms vendors operating in the Nigerian market are meant to have a licence.
NCC said that Nokia had started the application process three months ago but had failed to complete it.
