  1. Let them leave! They are economic vampires. Same with Dstv.

  2. The Minister is economical with the truth. This is is the same way we give leeway to foreign company and allow them to violate our laws. If MTN is found guilty of illegal transfer of funds, then, the company is guilty and any judgment meted on it is appropriate. If at the end it decided to leave the Nigerian shore, it's welcome. The Minister should not advocate for MTN, except there's something we're not being told.

  3. The minister is right. The senate is only trying to blackmail the company into giving them their own cut. If the company breached any laws why not report it to the right authorities to prosecute them? Yeye dey smell.
