Nigeria : 9mobile’s subscribers are worried about its future

(Ecofin Agency) - For two weeks now, there has been a battle between Teleology Holdings Limited and its local partner Teleology Nigeria.

Each party accuses the other of breaching the contractual agreement for the acquisition of 9mobile. Caught between the two parties, 9mobile’s subscribers are worried.

During an interview with The Vanguard, Deolu Ogunbanjo, president of The National Association of Telecommunications Subscribers (NATCOMS), invited the two parties to take into account subscribers and investments that could be affected by the failure of 9mobile.

According to Deolu Ogunbanjo, 9mobile has been in a difficult position for long. He thinks that it is time to resolve the mobile operator’s issue once and for all to boost it since the quality of its service has decreased and it has also lost market shares.  

"Though normal, change doesn’t come easy, but parties involved in this matter should resolve issues amicably", suggested Deolu Ogunbanjo who urged the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to get involved for a definite resolution of 9Mobile’s case which otherwise could negatively affect the performances of the national telecom sector on the longer-term.  

Umar Garba Danbatta, the executive vice president of the NCC, revealed that the commission has already taken measures to fix the operator’s problems in the interest of subscribers and the telecoms sector.  

“We need stability in the telecoms industry and we will do everything possible to protect the interest of both the 9mobile subscribers and its investors and ensure there is no disruption of services,”  he said.
