The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has said that it was not among the members of the new board of Etisalat.
Director of Public Affairs, NCC, Tony Ojobo said this in a statement on Saturday in Lagos.
“The commission hereby makes it clear that it is not on the Board of Etisalat.
“As the regulator of the telecommunications sector, there was a recommendation suggesting that NCC should be on the new board of the company but the commission declined.
“The NCC considered it necessary to bring this to the attention of the general public,” he said.
Etisalat Nigeria on Tuesday, July 4, confirmed the appointment of Boye Olusanya, a former Deputy Managing Director of Celtel Nigeria (now Airtel Nigeria) as its Chief Executive Officer.
The telecommunications company said that Olusanya was replacing Mr Matthew Willsher, who stepped down as the CEO on Monday, July 3.
