It was a double tragedy for one-time Chairman of Skye Bank Plc, Tunde Ayeni, penultimate week and this seems to be very unfortunate.
Barely a month after losing control of Skye Bank Plc as the helsman with the sacking of the bank’s board by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Ayeni has suffered yet another loss.
According to information available to us, he has been booted out again, but this time at ntel, a telecoms company where he was appointed Chairman.
Ayeni, who acquired Nigerian Telecommunications Limited (NITEL) and rebranded it ntel, was chairman of the company until recently when Gen. Theophilus Danjuma made a significant investment into the company and took over as chairman.
The takeover was confirmed by Kamar Abass, ntel’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), who in a statement, was quoted as saying our new chairman, and as a shareholder, we welcome his support as we add momentum to our growth and development in Nigeria telecoms industry.
The takeover sees Ayeni going a step lower in the firm hierarchy, as he now becomes vice chairman.
