Vietnam looking for telecom investment in Nigeria

Wednesday 22 November 2017 | 08:14 CET | News
Vietnam's Deputy Prime Minister of Vietnam Vuong Dinh Hue has confirmed the country is eager to explore telecoms-related investment in Nigeria via its state-owned operator, Viettel, ITWeb reported. The operator had initially planned to compete for tenders for the acquisition of a telecommunication operating license from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC). However, it is now considering the options related to 9mobile, the recently introduced new-look venture which is in the market for new owners to offset loans as a result of Etisalat's exit.
