The innovative Iska Weather Service therefore, is a timely and much-needed solution that underscores 9mobile’s passion for solving societal problems in our nation.”

Speaking further, Afuye said Iska Weather Service is affordable and flexible, with customers having the option to choose their preferred subscription package ranging from N10 per day, N35 per week or N100 per month.
