The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), has refuted claims that 9Mobile has been sold to Teleology Holding.
NCC Director of Public Sffairs Tony Ojobo, gave the position of the agency in a statement on Friday.
It reassured stakeholders of its commitment to ensure that the nation’s fourth largest Mobile Network Operator, EMTS/9Mobile, is duly taken over by investors with the requisite technical capability and pedigree to manage the organisation.
“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 will ensure that all relevant statutory and regulatory processes are duly complied with in the process leading up to the emergence of new owners for the company.
“NCC will 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,” Ojobo said.
