In very bad news, The Punch reports that Microsoft Mobile Nigeria, part of the unit that the Redmond corporation acquired from Nokia, has let go of 34 out of the 40 workers that make up the team. That’s 85% of the team.
The downsizing is part of the global layoff of workers that Microsoft had announced earlier. Our hearts go to the affected members. We have great memories of them from the Nokia glory days and trust that they will shine elsewhere.
