Olu Akanmu, the Chief Marketing Officer of Airtel Networks Limited, has resigned his appointment with the company.
In a press statement released by the telecommunications company, Akanmu left to pursue other interests.
According to the release “Mr. Akanmu led the marketing function at a crucial time in the life of our organization and brought his over two decades of marketing experience and a rich knowledge of the telecommunications market to bear on his role as our CMO.
“We wish him the very best in his future endeavours,” Ogunsanya added.
There are speculations that Akanmu resigned after it was discovered that Airtel, in breach of APCON rules, published an advert in one of Nigeria’s national dailies without clearance from him.
He was said to have been displeased that the said advert was published without reverting to him, a factor that suggested lack of respect for his office.
Akanmu resignation took effect from Wednesday, May 22, 2013.
