Information coming from telecoms giant, Etisalat is suggesting that hope is not lost on the sudden porting of popular comic actor, Hafiz Oyetoro better known as Saka, from Etisalat to MTN few months ago. Hafiz used to be an advert model for Etisalat before switching to MTN for their latest advert on Mobile Number Portability (MNP).
This is because Etisalat has vowed to reclaim their 'lost sheep' from their rival network within 90 days. This latest information was made known at an event last week in Lagos by the Chief Executive Officer of Etisalat, Steve Evans Pictured above
Speaking at a media Roundtable on Mobile Number Portability (MNP), Evans admitted that there was a mistake somewhere, which everyone is bound to make.
“We all make mistakes in life,” the top staff of the telecoms network service provider disclosed. He further said that he hopes Saka realizes his mistakes and port back at the end of the 90 days grace period given by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) for subscribers to port back to his or his original network
.Evans stated that Etisalat has expanded its network to accommodate more than 30 million subscribers, and double its present capacity.
He noted that more subscribers have joined their network since the MNP started in April 2013. The MNP is a platform where subscribers have the privilege to switch network and still retain their numbers. A subscriber has 90 days grace to effect another switch. The MNP has been embraced by many mobile phone users and it has brought about improved services by the telecoms operators in Nigeria.
