100 of Huawei Engineers Sacked Due to Etisalat Nigeria (9Mobile) Crisis

Huawei technology, a strategic partner of Etisalat Nigeria – now known as 9Mobile, has ended employment contracts of its engineering working with the Etisalat Nigeria.


This action was taken by the company due to the termination of all service contracts by Etisalat Nigeria due to the recent name change.

It would be recalled that the Nigerian business unit of the Etisalat Internationalis currently plagued with over $1.2 billion debt crisis. This has also made the parent company to withdrawal from its board and management.


According to a stakeholder in the industry, Mr Koledade Owa, Chairman of Private Telecommunications and Communications Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PTECSSAN) stated that the affected workers have worked for the organisation for over eight years and were unduly terminated.

“Precisely on Thursday and Friday, while our members were doing their work, they got a phone call that they have been sacked and were asked to vacate the premises.”

The new management of 9Mobile and the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) had earlier promised to do everything to ensure there is no job loss due to the current crisis the company is undergoing.

Many of the workers in Telecom companies are usually on contracts bases or outsourced; as a result, no job security which means that you can be terminated any time without prior notice.
