Telecommunications firm, 9mobile, on Tuesday debunked insinuations describing it’s Executive Director of Regulatory and Corporate Affairs, Abdulrahman Ado, as a terrorist.
It declared in a statement that he was not the same person as Abdulrahman Ado Musa named in a list of terrorism sponsors issued by the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday.
The Management of 9mobile wishes to inform the general public that its Executive Director of Regulatory and Corporate Affairs, Abdulrahman Ado, is not the same as ‘Abdurrahman’ Ado ‘Musa’ purportedly designated along with others by the United Arab Emirates as terror financiers.”
“We, however, wish to clarify that the so-named individual is not 9mobile’s Executive Director, Regulatory & Corporate Affairs, Abdulrahman Ado. The resemblance in names is purely coincidental, and our Director does not bear ‘Musa’’’, the telecom company said.
The company said its director, Abdulrahman Ado, is a respectable law-abiding Nigerian who had 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, 9mobile added.
“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’’, the company added.
