Some weeks ago, all UAE shareholders of Etisalat Nigeria pulled out of the company due to a N531 billion debt and were given 3 weeks to change its name within 3 weeks.
Insiders disclose that the company may opt for the name 9Mobile adding that management may change its mind.
A new board was also appointed to handle the smooth transition of the telecommunications company after a reallocation of shares.
Former Celtel (now Airtel) Nigeria Deputy Managing Director Boye Olusanya was recently ppointed as the Chief Executive Officer to oversee the transition.
Etisalat, which has more than 21 million subscribers, had earlier announced that name change will not affect its operations.
