Just incase you’re still in the dark about this, MTN have reportedly blocked all airtime recharges through banks.
If you had tried recharging your MTN line through your bank on Friday, you would notice that the operation will be unsuccessful or you will get an error message.
Personally for me, I did recharge my MTN line and quickly got a debit alert, but didn’t get any airtime top up message. Afterwards, the money was refund.
A message from the telecommunication company reads;
The actual cause of the problem cannot still be ascertained, but it is highly believed that there is an issue surrounding the telecommunication company with commercial banks.
So at the moment, all airtime recharges hailing from the bank have now been blocked by MTN.
MTN have swiftly dessiminated the information concerning the new development on their various channels, and have also given a little bit of hope to it’s customers that the issue will be looked upon as quick as possible.
But for now, the situation remains the same. Alternatively, you can top up your MTN line through utility service providers like Opay, Jumiapay etc. Or you can recharge your MTN line using the myMTN app or MoMo channels.
Meanwhile, Airtel, Glo, and 9mobile users can still continue to recharge their lines via their various banks.
