airtel and tigo

Citi Business News has learnt that the management of the new entity after the merger of Tigo and Airtel will begin a vetting and assessment exercise of all workers from the 13th of November 2017.

The exercise will follow a durbar on the 10th of November which will outdoor the brand team of the new entity as well as the integration process to synchronize the activities of Tigo and Airtel.

The Management of the new entity will on the 10th of November 2017 outdoor a functional executive team to the workers in Accra, after which the vetting will take place on November 13th.

Meanwhile, the vetting and assessment test is said to have put many of the workers on tenterhooks as they do not know their fate.

Already, some top management executives have left the merged entity, following the resignation of the Managing Director of Airtel, Madam Lucy Quist.

On October 13, 2017, the Managing Director of Tigo, Roshi Motman was named as the new CEO of the merged entity.

The resignations, Citi Business News understands are due to uncertainties among the top management of both telecom companies as they compete for the same positions under the new entity.

The National Communications Authority gave approval for the merger between Airtel and Tigo on 2nd October, resulting in an entity which will be the second largest mobile network operations in the country.

To ensure efficient and equitable distribution and access to the national spectrum, the merged entity is required to submit a network integration plan to the Authority which will indicate how they intend to relinquish portions of their total spectrum allocation.

The merged entity will have a 3G Licence valid until 25th January, 2024 while their 2G Licence will be valid until 30th October, 2021.
