Blackberry: Subscribers call for extension of subscription for service disruption

Lagos – The National Association of Telecom Subscribers (NATCOMS)
 has called on service providers to extend subscriptions for blackberry users
 who have been experiencing service disruption since Oct. 10.
Chief Deolu Ogunbanjo, President of NATCOMS on Thursday in
 Lagos said  that the extension would compensate subscribers
 for their inability to surf the web during the period of the disruption.
“Although Blackberry service is franchise to blackberry users
 in Nigeria, but adequate compensation, in terms of extension
 of their subscription, should be provided.
“They should compensate their subscribers for the three days of disruption to blackberry services.
“The extension has to be given by the service providers because
 Blackberry renders the service through their networks,” Ogunbanjo said.
Ogunbanjo said that the association would officially report the disruption of blackberry services to the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC)..
He also said that NATCOMS could even take issue up the issue
 at the global level, if nothing was done by the NCC..

How Access Bank Ruined Erastus Akingbola to Acquire Intercontinental Bank!!!

There are discrepancies going on in the sale of Intercontinental Bank Plc to Access Bank by the Central Bank of Nigeria. Some accusers are asking why the Central Bank Governor, Malam Sanusi Lamido sold Intercontinental Bank Plc to the Managing Director of Access Bank, Aig-Aigboje Imoukhuede, even when he was listed as one of the biggest debtors of Intercontinental bank Plc.

One of the reasons why former Intercontinental bank boss, Erastus Akingbola went into crisis cannot be far-fetched from Access bank's many debts and even while that was on going, Aig- Aigboye Imoukhuede's name which was mentioned amongst the bank's biggest debtors was carefully swept under the carpet due to his closeness with the CBN Governor!
