However, Etisalat International announced on Monday that it was pulling out
after all UAE shareholders of the company have exited and left the board and
management of the Nigerian brand.
Etisalat Nigeria only have 3 weeks to use the brand name, and then change it

will happen to the millions of subscribers on the network.
This is indeed the exit of Etisalat in Nigeria… a regrettably deadly blow.
How I wish she can be save.
