Disclosing this while fielding questions from journalists after signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on payment systems in Nigeria yesterday in Abuja, Danbatta said the preferred bidder, which has already paid a deposit of $50million, has to complete the payment within the deadline to fully acquire 9mobile.

Since its emergence, it has maked efforts to take over the telecom, including the payment of the $50 million nonrefundable deposit and releasing its agenda for 9Mobile. Speaking on the issue, Prof. Garba Umar Danbatta, Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC said on Tuesday that 9Mobile will be handed over to Teleology after the payment of the balance is completed within the given period of time. Danbatta said further: In the event that Teleology fails to make the payment at the expiration of the deadline, the reserved bidder will be considered, and the reserved bidder is Smile Communications.

The Argentine could only complete half Barca’s training session on Thursday and even though the club has not issued a medical report on the injury, Valverde declined to say whether he intended to pick his talisman on Saturday. “We have to wait,” Valverde told a news conference on Friday. “We are taking care of him, just as Argentina did. He has a little discomfort and we have to bear that in mind, because if it leads to a muscular tear then the situation is far more serious.”
