MTN has issued a terse statement apologizing for the network problems experienced by subscribers on Saturday.

Users on the telecommunication network began to have issues with calls and date from around 2:30pm.

MTN had failed to give customers a heads-up about the situation, leading to a blackout and outrage on social media.

Reacting, MTN which has over 77.35 million subscribers in the country, said it is working towards restoring normalcy in the affected areas.

In a post on its Facebook page, MTN apologized to customers experiencing the challenge, saying it was aware of the development.

The post reads, “Dear customers, we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused!

“Some of our customers are having difficulty in connecting to the network today. We are looking into this and are truly sorry for any inconvenience caused”.
