Mubadala asserts continued support for Etisalat Nigeria

Monday 19 June 2017 | 10:27 CET | News
Etisalat Nigeria is working with its lenders and Abu Dhabi state investment fund Mubadala to resolve debt difficulties that it said were caused by a devaluation of the naira, reports Reuters. Mubadala spokesman Brian Lott told the news agency that a local media report saying that the fund has pulled out of Etisalat Nigeria was wrong, and that several proposals are under discussion. He declined to elaborate on the options being considered but said he will know more by 23 June.
