The management of mobile telecommunication firm, 9mobile has reacted to media reports that one of its directors is on the United Arab Emirates (UAE} list of terrorist financiers.
In its clarification, 9mobile said that one Abdurrahman Ado Musa, who is on that list is not a director of the mobile telecommunications company.
This disclosure is contained in a statement issued by the company in Lagos, in which it said that the Abdulrrahman’ Ado Musa named on the UAE list, was not the same as Abdulrahman Ado, its Executive Director of Regulatory and Corporate Affairs.
9mobile said the resemblance in names was purely coincidental, adding that its director does not bear ‘Musa’. What 9mobile is saying in the statement
9 mobile said, “Our Director, Abdulrahman Ado, is a respectable law-abiding Nigerian. He served the country diligently in public service for over three decades before transferring his services to the private sector.
“He served in various capacities and was Pioneer Vice-Chairman of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission and Executive Commissioner, Licensing and Consumer Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission.
“As a law-abiding company that believes in the greatness of Nigeria, and the well-being of all its citizens, 9mobile would never accommodate any undesirable element within its management and staff.’’
