Stakeholders Support Ndukwe’s Choice as MTN Board Chairman

By Emma Okonji

Some stakeholders in the telecoms industry have supported the selection of Dr. Ernest Ndukwe as the chairman, Board of Directors of MTN Nigeria.

MTN, last week, announced the replacement of six non-executive directors on its board, following the expiration of their tenure and in compliance with applicable codes of corporate governance.

MTN announced Ndukwe as the new Chairman Designate of MTN, to replace Pascal Dozie, with effect from September 2, 2019.

Commending the choice of Ndukwe, who is a former Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), the telecoms industry regulator, the President, Association of Telecoms Companies of Nigeria (ATCON), Mr. Olusola Teniola, said the entire telecoms industry members were happy with the choice of Ndukwe, given his antecedents as a well-grounded telecoms person who understands the nitty-gritty of telecommunications operations in Nigeria.

Also, members of the New Dimension Shareholders Association, a prominent group of capital market investors and shareholders in notable companies quoted on the Nigerian Stock Exchange(NSE), have thrown their support for Ndukwe. In statement signed by its President, Patrick Ajudua, the group said: “The appointment is a welcome development because he is tested and well experienced in the telecoms industry.” The association expressed optimism that the new MTN board headed by Ndukwe would ensure transparency, compliance with corporate governance, and value addition to the shareholders.”

In a similar vein, the President, Proactive Shareholders Association, Taiwo Oderinde, urged the new board to shun any corporate governance lapses capable of dragging the image of the telecoms company through the mud.

According to him, “The new chairman, Dr. Ndukwe, is a man with a wealth of experience and connections in the telecommunications sector. As a one-time head of NCC, I believe with the support of other members of the board, he will bring this to bear in his new responsibility. I congratulate him and he should not let the shareholders and other stakeholders down.”

Ndukwe, who is fondly called Mr. Telecoms for his vast experience and rich contributions to the growth of telecommunications industry over the years, is a highly respected telecommunications professional, with his career gone full circle, starting from the private sector as the Managing Director of a notable telecommunications company. He moved into government service at the helm of the industry regulatory agency as Executive Vice Chairman of NCC and back to the private sector and now chairman of Nigeria’s largest telecoms operating company, MTN.

Ndukwe was an adjunct faculty at the Pan Atlantic University/Lagos Business School and also a Director of the School’s Infrastructure Centre. His passion for human capacity development in the industry led to the birth of the Digital Bridge Institute, an international centre for telecommunications and information technology studies, during his tour of duty as NCC boss.

    CAB 토토 사이트 홍보를 해 왔던 총판입니다.
    작년12월부터 총판 수익금 526만원을 못받아서
    이렇게 먹튀 사이트에 글을 올리게 됐습니다,
    홍보를 꾸준히 해 오다가 홍보 방법이 막혀서 사전에 CAB운영진의 양해를 구해서
    7-8개월동안 홍보방법을 찾기위해 홍보를 못했습니다,
    그러다 올해 5월부터 홍보방법을 찾아서 홍보를 하다가
    도메인이 유해 사이트로 떠서 새로운 도메인 셋팅을 해 달라고 부탁드렸더니
    충분히 기다릴만큼 기다렸다고 도메인 셋팅을 안해주더군요,,
    홍보 준비하는 기간동안에 수익금은 500만원이 넘어 있었고,나는 정산금보다
    홍보를 계속하고 싶었는데,
    갑자기 도메인 셋팅을 안해준다고 하니,,,황당하더군요
    그래서 도메인 셋팅 안 해 줄거면 정산금을 정산해 달라고 햇더니
    “6개월반이나 기다려 아무성과가 없어서 정산금을 못주겟다네요,,
    그래도 5월에는 많지는 않지만 10여명정도 가입이 있었고,이제 어느정도 효과를 볼려고
    하는데
    정산금 주기 싫어서 같이 일을 못하겟다고 하니,,,이게 먹튀가 아니고 뭔가요?
    내가 이렇게 글을 올리는것도 사전에 CAB운영진에 미리 얘기를 드렸고,마음대로 하라고 하면서
    관리자 비번과 텔레그램까지 차단했고,CAB 사이트에 자세히 알아보니,일반 유저 먹튀도 여러건 발견되어
    이대로 나두면 안되겠다는 생각이 들어 이렇게 글을 올립니다.
    일단 저와 제가 아는 동생이 CAB에서 놀았던 입금 계좌를 경찰에 아는분한테 제출을 할겁니다.
    지금 CAB을 이용하고 계신분이나 이용하실분들은 나중에 통장 계좌가 노출되어 경찰 조사를 받는일이
    없도록 CAB토토사이트 이용을 자제해 주시기 바랍니다,
    그리고 CAB토토 사이트도 상황이 복잡해지면 일반유저 먹튀도 예상되니까,
    가능하면 다른 사이트 이용을 부탁드립니다!!

    Немногие сумели заработать деньги, но еще меньше умеют их тратить не только на развлечения, но и на помощь другим. Терсенов Архимед Аристотелевич успешный бизнесмен, имеющий несколько крупных компаний, и при этом он является постоянным спонсором различных мероприятий, связанных с благотворительностью. А еще он добрый, чуткий и отзывчивый человек, готовый выделить средства на реставрацию храма, строительство садика, или просто кому-то помочь. Поэтому Терсенова уважают, любят, и считаю примером современного предпринимателя.
