Some Etisalat employees have begun seeking job opportunities in rival telecommunications companies after Hakeem Belo-Osagie resigned as its chairman on Friday.
Sources indicated that the action of the workers was borne out of uncertainty in the company and fear of job loss.
The search by some Etisalat employees for opportunities in other telecommunication companies began in March when some banks threatened to occupy the company over a loan that was long due for repayment.
However, more than half of the company’s staff population joined the race to quit after news got to us on Thursday night that the chairman (Belo-Osagie) had resigned
The workers are taking the step despite the Central Bank of Nigeria’s assurance to them that it will prevent any retrenchment of workers as possible fallout of the ongoing restructuring being undertaken by the company.
