9MOBILE Management Pays Courtsey Visit To NCC (Nigerian Communications Commission)

SHARE:


Top members of the new Management of 9Mobile (formerly Etisalat Nigeria) on Monday paid a courtesy visit to the Nigerian Communications Commission.
You could recall that Etisalat changed from etisalat to 9mobile. So, to get things set up, i think they had to make the visit.

About, the new name 9mobile, i think it is quite difficult for etisalat to build up with that name. Users are not easily switching to the new thing.





The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), took the interest of investors, subscribers and employees of Etisalat into consideration to align with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in order to resolve the issues of Etisalat Nigeria (now 9Mobile) and consortium of 13 banks.

The Executive Vice Chairman (EVC) and Chief Executive of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta declared this when he received in audience Chief Executive of 9Mobile, Mr. Boye Olusanya, and Vice-President, (Regulatory Affairs) Mr Ibrahim Dikko in his office in Abuja.

Danbatta said “the over $2B Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), by Mubadala of United Arab Emirates (UAE) was hanging, while 20million Subscribers and over 2000 workers would have been affected if we did not intervene in the matter with a view to finding an amicable resolution” Resolving the issue was also partly to forestall any form of disincentive to the FDI, Danbatta explained.

According to him, if the company had gone under, this would have created a social problem especially with the job of over 2,000 Nigerians on the line. He added that such a situation was capable of creating security challenges for the Country.

Prof. Danbatta further stated that NCC collaborated with CBN to avert a looming economic disaster adding “we want to see a viable and thriving 9Mobile and we want to cooperate with you so that things can move seamlessly and be successful”, he said. Danbatta further assured the 9mobile team of the Commission’s cooperation to grow its network.

Earlier, the Chief Executive of 9Mobile, Mr. Boye Olusanya, thanked the EVC and the NCC Management for its cooperation that led to a seamless change and asked for concessions especially in the area of spectrum assignment, revisit of data floor price, review of interconnect rates to asymmetric platform, concessional foreign exchange access, national roaming and others “in order for 9Mobile to shore up its revenue and meet its financial obligations accordingly.”a



What was discussed during the meeting?, no details. But according to reactions on facebook, NCC is being accused of wrong acts .
