MTN win NPL sponsorship rights

MTN beat off competition from rivals and former sponsors Globacom, who bid N2 billion over the same time frame.

The announcement came at the end of a two-day bid process which saw the NPL's Bid Committee appraise the offerings of Glo and Total Promotions, representing MTN.

Officials told that the MTN bid also included sweeteners absent from the Glo bid.

An official contract signing ceremony is expected before Christmas.
