If you’ve been away from the country for some time, the name 9Mobile may seem strange to you but if I were to ask if you’ve ever heard of Etisalat, then you would probably understand.
9Mobile was established based on the decision of Etisalat International to exit the Nigerian market after their inability to pay an outstanding $1.2 billion loan which they had incurred when the telecommunications outfit was established in the country.
The company had struggled to pay the loan and as at the time of their exit, they had only paid 42% of the loan.
Their decision to exit the Nigerian market led to a quick handover to 9mobile. Prior to this, the CEO of Etisalat International, Hatem Dowidar on behalf of the company had given Etisalat Nigeria three weeks to close down activities in the country.
9mobile was the product of this process and the company is currently led by Mr Boye Olusanya and the chairman is Mr Joseph Nnanna, a former deputy governor of Central Bank of Nigeria.
The name 9Mobile comes from their 0809ja heritage, their Nigerianness and their evolution over the last 9 years. The number themed one represents resilience and continuity. It also reflects the network’s futuristic perspective. Also, the colour green signifies vibrancy, life and dynamism.
Currently, 9Mobile seems to have arrived with a bang and they are leveraging on some of the successful products of Etisalat including their internet service and data plans to grow their user base in the country.
