OUT Etisalat Nigeria, IN 9Mobile

The management of Etisalat Nigeria after a meeting yesterday has unanimously adopted a new name of 9Mobile as its new brand name. Recall that the Chief Executive of Etisalat International, Hatem Dowidar had said that Etisalat Group would, in the next 3 weeks, phase out the brand name in Nigeria.

The decision followed Emirates Telecommunications Group (Etisalat Group) withdrawal of further involvement in the ownership of the Nigerian subsidiary. Until June 15 2017, the United Arab Emirates, UAE, group was a major shareholder in Etisalat Nigeria, along with United Arab Emirates Sovereign Wealth Fund through Mubadala Development Company, Abu Dhabi.

Following Thursday’s announcement of the new brand name, all staff of the company nationwide were sent notices of the Change of Name. The company’s new name is yet to be unveiled officially to the public. New Chief Executive, Boye Olusanya said the new management was mandated to ensure the business was run as profitable venture. “What is most important now is to ensure the business runs and meets its obligations. We will focuss on getting the company back on track as soon as possible,” he said.
