Teleology Appoints New Board of Directors for 9mobile

Teleology has announced the constitution of a new Board of Directors for Nigeria’s multi-award-winning telecommunication company, 9mobile, following the successful completion of the tenure of the former Board appointed by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and in fulfillment of the consequential transfer of final ownership to the new investors, Teleology Nigeria Limited.

We thank all out-going members of the Board for helping to shepherd 9mobile through the critical transition phase it has passed through since July 2017 and wish them the very best in their future assignments.

For us, the composition of the new Board of Directors is another significant milestone, and this follows the issuance of final approval of no objection by the Board of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to the effect that the technical and financial bids Teleology submitted for 9mobile met and satisfied all the regulatory requirements. This is indeed the dawn of a new era in the evolution of the 9mobile brand in the Nigerian market.

The New Board of Directors Are :

1. Nasiru Ado Bayero (Chairman)

2. Asega Aliga (Non Executive Director)

3. Adrian Wood (Non Executive Director)

4. Mohammed Edewor (Non Executive Director)

5. Winston Ndubueze Udeh (Non Executive Director)

6. Abdulrahman Ado (Executive Director)

7. Stephane Beuvelet (Acting Managing Director)

The new Chairman of the Board, Alhaji Nasiru Ado Bayero welcomes the appointment stating, “as we begin this new epochal phase, we wish to thank all the employees who built this viable business. Our debt of gratitude also goes to our subscribers even as we assure them to get ready for real best-in-class additional value for their relationship with the 9mobile brand. Without you, there could not have been a 9mobile business for us to invest in today. We will justify your confidence in our brand by making significant investments that will improve the value you get for using 9mobile.”

It would be recalled that the CBN in collaboration with the NCC, had in July 2017 appointed a Board of Directors chaired by Dr. Joseph Nnanna, the Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, to oversee the affairs of the company pending the completion of regulatory due diligence of the bid documents submitted by Teleology and sixteen others for its acquisition. The bid process was superintended by Barclays Africa. But with the emergence of the Board, the long process for the acquisition of 9mobile has reached a definitive end marking the beginning of a new era for the telecommunication company.

The Journey of TECNO Camon Series and the projection of the Next Camon device

The TECNO Camon Series has been one of TECNO’s best smartphone Series, most popular for their camera-centric nature. This Series focused pretty much on delivering quality cameras, especially the front-facing aspect which has seen a whole lot of improvements over the years. And the fact that people take photos with their front facing camera more than they do with their rear one these days, has helped the brand rose to fame in Africa.

The Evolution of TECNO Camon Series

The Camon X/X Pro is the latest instalment in the Camon line which has taken a whole lot of work and improvements over the years to get here. First was the 2015 TECNO Camon C8 which had a 5MP camera with the ability to capture photos and record videos in low-light thanks to its front-facing LED flash. A year after that in 2016 came its successor, the TECNO Camon C9 packing more than twice the camera quality with a 13MP selfie camera along with an LED Flash and some few other features like deep skin beautification technology all aimed at delivering those perfect pictures.
Soon after in March 2017, TECNO Camon CX, a successor to the Camon C9 arrived with not one, but four rear LED-flash to brighten those low-light photos. The front facing camera also got a bump to 16MP with some customized filters.
In January 2018, the TECNO Camon CM was launched as the first TECNO Smartphone with the trendy 18:9 aspect. It also had a 13MP front-facing camera and of course, an LED flash. Just when we thought that was it for the Camon Series in 2018, they blew us away with the launch of the Camon X and X Pro. TECNO Camon X has a 20MP front-facing camera while the X Pro takes it up a notch higher with a 24MP selfie camera and a dual-LED flash.

TECNO LAUNCHING A NEW CAMON SMARTPHONE

Pictures taken with the Camon X and X Pro look so good which leaves one to wonder how the next instalment of the Camon Series will look like. There are rumours flying around already that the brand is working on the third Camon device this year, which will come in two Variants with key features such as AI-HDR, AI-Beautification, AI-Selfie, AI-bokeh.
If the rumours are anything to go by then we should be looking an overall faster device with an improved AI camera. However, we would advise you to take this with a pinch of salt as it hasn’t been confirmed yet.
Now, asides from the camera which we all know is going to be exceptional on the next TECNO Camon device, which other specs do you think the next TECNO Camon device will have? and what name would it be given? TECNO Camon XL? TECNO Camon XS?  Let us know in the comment section down below.

We will be showing you how to do that here.

HOW TO REMOVE ANNOYING ADS ON YOUR TECNO, INFINIX AND GIONEE PHONES

The number one reason why most tecno and Infinix users are receiving ads is the launcher they are using. Tecno comes HiOS launcher while Infinix comes with XOS launcher. These two launchers show you ads in form of recommending apps for you to download. You can see the ad when you pull up the app launcher. On Tecno Phones (HiOS launcher) and Infinix Phones (XOS launcher), you can turn this off by following the steps below.

1. Press and hold on an empty space on your phone’s home screen till some options come up at the bottom side of the screen.

3. In the bottom side, Click on desktop settings for Tecno Phones and Menu for Infinix Phones and Select Other Settings.

If you’re being plagued by pop up ads on your android device then there are so many approach to fix the problem. First, you can try to figure out which app is popping up the ad on your screen. If the ads only pops up when you launch a specific app then that app is definitely the cause of the pop up ad which might be a way for the developers of the app to monetise the app. You can either uninstall the app to stop the pop up ads or continue using the app like that with the pop up ads. You can also download an add blocker like “Ad Block Plus” or any other ad blocker from the Google Play store to do the job for you.

Now, if the pop up ad randomly pop ups on your android without launching an app then we might be looking at a virus. You can try using an antivirus app to scan your device. A better solution will be to factory reset your device which will wipe everything off including the virus. Remember to back up your important files before performing a factory reset on your device. Once you do that, the pop up ads should stop. Going forward, you should be careful of the apps you install and where you get the apps from.

Push ads are the ads/notification that just show up on your notification panel. Stopping this kind of add is actually very easy. All you have to do is wait till you get any of those ads, swipe down your notification panel and click on it. Any app that opens is the app responsible for this. You’ll then have to navigate to that app settings from within the app and turn it off. Different apps have different methods of turning this off. If you can’t find the option to turn this off in the settings menu of the app you can drop the name of the app below in the comment section and we’ll guide you on how to go about it.
