According to NAN, in the “2015 Q3 Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Reports’’, NCC had resolved to monitor and sanction violations with MNP process time obligations said “to address the increasing cases of port request rejections’’.

They should both sign cheques for NGN 20k each and send it to NCC. Or maybe send some recharge cards to the government - It saves wasting time in court.
