Glo under pressure to avoid closure over debt payment issues

5 Nov 2018

Ghanaian cellco Glo Mobile is close to being closed down due to non-payment of a debt worth around GHS10 million (USD2.1 million), writes Africa Feeds. This week the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) suspended Glo’s activities as it cracks down on operators defaulting on tax payments. The GRA has given Glo more time to pay its debts or risk closure within the coming months. As previously reported by CommsUpdate, another Ghanaian cellco, Surfline Communictions, was last week shut down by the GRA as it too had failed to pay taxes that it owed to the authorities.
