Nigeria: Airtel to Appeal Verdict Ceding 5 Percent Share to Econet

Bharti Airtel has said it will appeal against a Nigerian High Court ruling which gave Econet Wireless 5 per cent share in Airtel Nigeria. A Federal High Court, last week, awarded Econet Wireless the 5 per cent stake, after a lengthy legal process.

Econet said in a statement earlier Monday that the high court had reinstated the shares and also ordered that the name change from Econet Wireless Nigeria Limited was irregular, and must be reversed forthwith.
