Telecommunication giant MTN has warned that the current fuel scarcity in the country may lead it to close shop in the meantime.

The company raised the fear via its official twitter account where it lamented that the crisis is affecting its operation, adding that customers will soon be experiencing poor mobile network signal.

According to the statement: ” Most of our base stations and switches are powered round-the-clock by Diesel Generators and current fuel shortage has drastically reduced the availability of diesel supply to key locations.

“MTN’s available reserves of diesel are running low and the company must source for a significant quantity of diesel in the very near future to prevent a shutdown of service across Nigeria.” mtn

In a related development, Beat FM and Naija FM owned by broadcaster turned businessman, Chis Ubosi have stopped broadcasting for 24 hours.

On Saturday, the two stations went off air at 8.00pm owing to fuel scarcity. The continuity announcer on duty at Beat FM said that the station will resume broadcast on Sunday morning.
