Afew days ago, Teleology Nigeria Limited, a telecomm company, announced its formal takeover of the Management of 9Mobile and its appointment of Nasir Ado Bayero, a technocrat, as the new chairman of the Board along with other executive and non – executive directors. This followed the final approval of no objection by the Board of the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, after about 17 months of strenuous negotiation. Teleology Holdings Limited beat 16 other firms that submitted Expression of Interest forms to emerge the preferred bidder.
In response to his appointment, Bayero, the new chairman, thanked all the employees, stating that “as we begin this new epochal phase, we wish to thank all the employees who built this viable business. Our gratitude also goes to our subscribers even as we assure them to get ready for real best – in – class value for choosing the 9Mobile brand. We will justify your confidence in our brand by making significant investment that will improve the value you get for using 9Mobile”.
A swift boardroom player, Nasir Ado Bayero, an embodiment of integrity, propriety and rectitude, will bring his cognate experience and wisdom to bear on the operations of this company. In all circumstances, Nasir Bayero has displayed skills, commitment to duty and zeal to work, making successes at every assignment with decorum and ease. Every where he has worked, he has remained an inspiration and a tremendous motivation to many as a great manager of men. Properly nuanced and principled, Nasir possesses competence, capacity and resilience in quantum.
Following his antecedents, I am positive he will focus on productivity, operational efficiency and probity. To him, customer satisfaction is key. Personalities are different and, therefore, have corresponding impact on the style and content of one’s leadership. It is pleasing that in the chairman’s case, his achievements loom large to the advantage of this corporate entity. I am confident he will ensure that the company engages more with the public as well as create a window for the galvanization of feedback for good service delivery. The likelihood of him striving to endear 9Mobile to its clientele is manifest. Already, millions of subscribers have entrusted their telecommunication needs into the hands of 9Mobile in anticipation of a re-invented, revitalized and fortified company that will soon be the service provider to beat on the horizon.
A scion of Kano Royal dynasty, Nasir Ado Bayero is the son of the late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, one of the most popular, colourful and celebrated Emirs in the history of the ancient city of Kano. He is currently the Ciroma of Kano (Crown Prince), member of Kano Emirate Council and District Head of Nasarawa where he has held sway peacefully for many years as an innovative and ingenious leader. He is one prince who has made the point that the purpose of leadership is to serve. Under his stewardship, his community has grown and developed tremendously. Besides being royalty, Nasir Bayero has, on his own, strived to achieve a lot in life leaving an indelible mark in the world of business and on the sand of history.

Against these striking credentials, it is certain, Nasir Ado Bayero, the Ciroman Kano, will bring his knowledge, experience and wisdom to bear on his new assignment as chairman of the Board of Teleology Holdings Ltd, the owners of 9Mobile.
