News reaching us says that GLO would be taking full acquisition of 9mobile. According to Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) the deal has been finally approved and this therefore means that our dear 9mobile will be sold to Globacom on the 16th of January, 2018.
If we recall, there were many bidders that planned on acquiring 9mobile but after the struggles and bidding, Glo has been declared as the successful company to gain full acquisition of 9mobile and with this happening, Glo will be considered the largest telecommunication network in Nigeria.
This is actually a good one for Glo and I hope with this new acquisition this will help bolster their poor network services. But the thing is I’m really gonna miss my dear Etisalat turned 9mobile. This guys have been wonderful since they came into existence in Nigeria. Their network coverage has been one of the best ever since and this is a great opportunity for Glo. The handover and transactions of 9mobile to the new buyer will be concluded on the 16th of January, 2018.
