How to buy MTN Shares in Simple Steps

1. Start with an app: For this process, you would need a smartphone. Go to your phone’s app store.

2. Download App: Download the Primary Offer app from the Google Play store or the Apple iOS store to your mobile device. The app is made by Chapel Hill Denham, watch out for that. With a good mobile network, the download and installation should take less than three minutes.

3. Set up an account: Create an account using your bank verification number and date of birth. Here, you’d also need to set up your password, which should be kept as private as possible. Once this is done, the app would already have some of your details, showing that it is somewhat connected to the banking system.

4. Validate your account: After setting up your account, you will be asked to enter your security code. That code is in an email you already received. It is a one-time password (OTP), which you will type into the app to validate your account.

5. Log in and begin: Once your account is all set up, you’d get a congratulatory message on your screen. The message would also have a blue button, asking you to log in to the app. Enter your email and recently created password to get into the dashboard. Once you’re in, click on the MTN Nigeria offers.

6. Terms and Purchase: Once you click on MTN Nigeria offer, you’d see the terms and condition page, read, and accept by ticking the unchecked column near the purchase button. Once you do that, click on purchase.

7. Choose a number of shares: Your latest screen should now be showing “Enter your transaction details”. In the column for specified units, enter the number of units you want to buy. The minimum number of shares you can buy is 20.

According to MTN, “the minimum application is 20 shares and multiples of 20 shares thereafter, so 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120…etc. There is no maximum, however, the number of shares allotted will be within the offered size of up to 575,000,000 ordinary shares.”

One share cost N169. So for the minimum number of shares, you would need N3,380.

8. Pay now: After choosing the number of shares, and checking the terms and condition box, you click on “pay now”. The app asks if you have a CSCS account. A Central Securities Clearing System (CSCS) account is a financial infrastructure for clearing, storing, and settlement of securities transactions. It is where all your shares are domiciled.

If you have a CSCS account, click on yes, if not, click on no. The option you choose will determine the next line of action. For both answers, the process is simple. The app helps set up your CSCS account and allows you to process payment for the shares.

If you already have a CSCS account, enter the account number and your clearinghouse number (CHN). After this, you update your bank details, where your dividends will likely be paid then you click on “pay now”.

9. Pay with card or USSD or transfer: When you get to this page, you have many payment options, choose which one works for you — bank transfer or card payment or just USSD — and pay for the shares. Please note that bank charges will be added, bringing your N3,380 to N3,418.

10. Share allotment: Once payment is made, you would get a mail, stating the details of your payment and confirming receipt of the payments. Following approval by SEC, your shares would be allotted in less than 15 days. Going with these steps, you easily become an MTN shareholder.

  1. The CSCS account is the bigger problem. That’s the area people have difficulties. Alot of people are interested, but the CSCS account discourages them.

  2. I actually bought 60 units and was thinking if I can get to buy more afterwards, but the process was very smooth because I never had a CSCS account and one was created for me in 2 working days.

    Just want to know if i can buy more before the offer ends to add to what i got before the certificate is issued

  3. Nice article bro, but these stuff always comes when they’re no cash to spend but I will muscle on this one at least to answer a name as a share holder.

  4. I paid thru bank transfer to a Wema bank account for 100 units. Prof don’t laugh at me, no money. I got my CSCS account 10 years ago thru CashCraft management.

  5. Prof Yomi, you are a blessing to us. I have followed ur blog for years. May God continue to bless you for your selfless service to God and Humanity.
    I have succeeded in buying MTN shares and the money has reflected on my dashboard. Prof, pls educate me what it means being an MTN share holder. What are the gains? Does it mean I can trade my shares on Nigerian stock exchange? How do I make profits being an MTN share holder, etc. Prof, I will appreciate it if you educate me on all these questions.

  6. Dear Prof, can you please recommend a reputable app where one can be trading stock on the go also how to view one portfolio on Nigeria stock exchange online.

  7. It seems the selling of mtn share is over. The time period for the share is too short. Most people us who uses mtn for over 15 years and above wish to invest in the company but we had it late. What else can I do. Wait for Airtel, Glo or MTN again.
