Nigerian regulators intervened last week to save Etisalat Nigeria from collapse after talks with its lenders to renogotiate a $1.2billion loan failed.
Etisalat with a 45 percent stake in the Nigerian business, said in June it had been ordered to transfer its shares to a loan trustee after the talks had failed.
CEO of Etisalat international Hatem Dowidar said all UAE shareholders of Etisalat Nigeria, including state owned investment fund Mubadala, had exited the company and left the board and management.
He said in an interview with Reuters discussions were ongoing with Etisalat Nigeria to provide technical support, adding that it could continue to use the brand for another three weeks before phasing out.
