Etisalat Nigeria rebrands to 9mobile
4th mobile telecom operator in Nigeria, Etisalat, has announced a name change following the exit of Etisalat UAE from Nigerian operations following an unsettled loans debacle.
The official statement reads:
“Emerging Markets Telecommunication Services Limited (EMTS), which previously traded as ‘Etisalat Nigeria’ wishes to inform its over 20 million subscribers, government, regulatory agencies and all relevant stakeholder groups that the telecommunication company has changed its name to 9mobile as a further testament of our unwavering commitment to ensuring business continuity as Nigeria’s fourth largest telecom operator.”
The company recently underwent a board and management restructuring which saw the exit of promoter and Chairman, alongside others.
