Etisalat network has served us well along the year and has one of the fastest mobile internet networks in Nigeria. With fascinating tariff plans and data bundles, you simply cannot resist being on the network. The sad news is, Etisalat will exit Nigeria in three weeks!

The Etisalat Group – the parent company of Etisalat Nigeria, has pulled out of Nigeria and demanded that the use of its brand be phased out after three weeks.

According to Channels.tv, the Abu Dhabi-based company decided to exit the country after talks between Etisalat Nigeria and a group of banks over the restructuring of a $1.2bn loan failed.

Chief Executive Officer of Etisalat International, Mr Hatem Dowidar, told Reuters that the company had terminated its management agreement with Etisalat Nigeria.

He, however, said talks were ongoing with Etisalat Nigeria to provide technical support and that its brand can be used for another three weeks before it is phased out.

In June, after the Etisalat Group informed the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange of the failure of Etisalat Nigeria to reach an agreement on the restructuring of the deal, the Central Bank of Nigeria, the Nigerian Communications Commission and officials of the telco met on June 21 to resolve the debt crisis.

The problem now is, what is going to happen with the name and the number of people using the Etisalat SIM for business?

Is Etisalat probably going to change their name like “Zain to Airtel” or just shut down completely?

Well, let me hear from you all… becasue I’m not happy about this!

  1. Hmmmm, this is not too good for our economy and the masses that will be thrown into the Labour market. A lot of Nigerians used etisalat network in their businesses, am not talking about internet now but people whose core business line has been etisalat.
    Until our government wake up to their responsibilities, we will continue to have collapsed businesses.
