9mobile debunks sale annulment reports
The Company Secretary/Legal Adviser, 9mobile, Ore Olajide, said that the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja did not nullify the sale of the company to Teleology Nigeria Ltd.
He said that the court on April 1, 2019, made an order for parties to maintain status quo as at April 25, 2018, because as at the said date, EMTS (9mobile) was not a party to the suit before the court.
“The sale of 9mobile to Teleology Nigeria Limited has not been nullified.
“The court made an order to maintain status quo as at April 25, 2018, when 9mobile was not a party to the suit and we have appealed the ruling as well as seeking an injunction pending appeal at the Court of Appeal.
“The action before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court is not about the sale of EMTS (9mobile) but rather, the transfer of the license even without locus standi,” he said in a statement.
Olajide urged all subscribers and stakeholders of 9mobile to remain calm as matters were under control.
He noted that the team of legal counsel were doing everything in their power to put everything in order.
Olajide said that 9mobile remained focused on providing best in class telecommunication services to its subscribers and would provide necessary updates in due course.
It could be recalled that it was reported that the Federal High Court in Abuja had earlier warned all parties involved in the transaction for the sale of troubled telecom firm, Etisalat (9mobile) against taking further steps to conclude the sale.
