Hello esteemed customers

We are experirncing a heavy congestion towards the Nigeria networks and on the gateway. We apologize for these delays but we assure you that your messages will be delivered when the logs are cleared.

Do we have an ETA on this? unfortunately, as congestion is not really on our side, but on operator’s we dont have any ETA, however, it is expected that congestion should be cleared soon and messages towards valid and reachable numbers will be delivered


Thank you for your understanding

MTN Nigeria Delivery Issues

To Our Esteemed Customers

We regret to inform you that we are currently experiencing delivery issues on the Nigerian MTN network. It was gathered that MTN has implemented a strict filter on incoming traffic, one that does not allow alphanumeric sender ID to be used.

To ensure delivery under such conditions, we will be automatically changing all senders for incoming traffic to a randomly generated numeric value.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Please let us know if you have further questions as we work to update you as soon as we have more information.

Thank you
