The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has said that it was not among the members of the new board of Etisalat Nigeria.

In a statement in Lagos on Saturday, NCC's Director of Public Affairs, Mr Tony Ojobo, said: “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 News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that 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's predecessor Mr Matthew Willsher, stepped down the previous day.

It also said that Mrs Funke Ighodaro had been appointed Chief Finance Officer, to take over from Mr Olawole Obasunloye, who also resigned on July 3.

Etisalat Nigeria said the changes were the fallouts of its restructuring efforts, which led to the appointment of Dr Joseph Nnanna, a Deputy Governor of the Central Bank, as Chairman of the board, in place of Hakeem Bello-Osagie, who resigned, as part of the agreement reached for a seamless transition.

Also appointed into the board along with Nnanna, Olusanya and Ighodaro are Mr Oluseyi Bickersteth and Mr Ken Igbokwe. (NAN)
