NCC To Approve Only Competent Investors For 9Mobile Sale

Published

on

The board of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), has reassured stakeholders of its commitment to ensure that the nation’s fourth largest mobile network operator, EMTS/9Mobile, was duly taken over by investors with the requisite technical capability and pedigree to manage the organisation.

Rising from its board meeting held in Abuja on Thursday, February 22, 2018, the board affirmed its determination to avoid the recurrence of any missteps that may have led to the current situation.

The board also made it clear that pursuant to the powers conferred on the Commission by the provisions of the Nigerian Communications Act 2003 and other instruments in that regard, the Commission would  ensure that all relevant statutory and regulatory processes were duly complied with in the process leading up to the emergence of new owners for the company.

According to Tony Ojobo, director, Public Affairs, NCC, the board therefore assured all stakeholders that the Commission  would apply all necessary diligence to see the ongoing sale process through to its logical conclusion in a manner that protects the overall national interest and the seamless operation of the national telecommunications network.
