The federal High Court sitting in Lagos will commence hearing on the $2 billion tax dispute between Federal Government and South African telecoms firm MTN Group.
According to the Court registrar, the hearing would commence on February 2019.
In a statement released on Monday, the court registrar disclosed that the hearing would commence February 7, 2019.
A judge was scheduled to hear the case on Monday but a registrar stressed that the court would not sit and the hearing had been moved to February.
MTN faces a $2 billion tax demand from the country’s attorney general, a claim which the company has said is without merit.
