Mobile Number Portability coming soon

Number portability was coming soon three years ago, but now maybe it's really very near
Been waiting so long, we don't really give a blank. 
What I object to is the little symbol they at the NCC have designed to illustrate the program: it has arrows cycling merrily between the four major mobile companies: MTN, Airtel, Etisalat, Glo.

From what folks are saying, the net change will be more like this:


Anyway, information:
Mobile Number Portability (MNP) is a service that enables you to keep your mobile phone number when changing from one mobile service provider to another.  So, if you switch between service providers, you do not have to go through the trouble of informing all your friends, family, colleagues, and other contacts because your number stays the same. 
Mobile number portability will initially be available among the four GSM mobile operators. - (NCC)

MNP Airtel is implemented in different ways across the globe. The International and European standard is for a customer wishing to port his/her number to contact the new network. MNP is a service that enables mobile telephone users to retain their mobile telephone numbers when changing from one mobile network operator to another and can do MNP Status Check.

This is a first hand information from me to you and I would appreciate it if you would exercise some concession with regards to this information. Let me get to it. There is a social network that has different platforms called Eyeuser.com owned by a group in Nigeria.
The domain and the website address is held in the United States. Google has shown so much interest in this social network because Eyeuser is strongly believed to be different from most social networks. They are drawn to its functionality and the new catchy words used on it. For example, the standard 'SEND' button is known on the platform as 'Eye Send'. There are also words like 'Recent Eyes', 'Eye inbox' , 'Eye a job' and much more. Now, this is the first ever social network owned by Africans {Nigerian} that Google has offered a staggering amount by way of an open cheque to the owners of Eyeuser.com.
There is currently a plan for Google to take over this social network. This meeting has already been scheduled by the Google team and Eyeuser.com. This meeting will be happening in Lagos Nigeria, on the 8th of June 2013 at Mayumi Restaurant Japanese Cuisine, Oriental Hotel in Victoria island @ 4 pm.
Fortunately, I am an insider with one of the teams and I get all the information as they happen. I will use this initial communication as a test to your media. As soon as the take over comes through and is confirmed by your team, i will send you more mouth-watering information. By this time, you would have compensated me for the Google take over information as well as further information which i will be bringing to you. I leave this part of it to your discretion.

I look forward to hearing from you and to the beginning of a good partnership.

Ps. this a tip: The topic to your viewers listeners or your readers, how much should Eyeuse write on the open cheque from Google.
