Etisalat latest operator affected by Nigeria fuel crisis

Etisalat latest operator affected by Nigeria fuel crisis.

Nigeria's fourth largest operator, Etisalat has become the latest telco to inform its subscribers of "possible disruptions" to its operations and services following the West African nation's fuel shortage crisis.

Two of Nigeria's biggest mobile operators, MTN and Airtel, reported at the weekend that their services would be affected by the nationwide fuel shortages.

Nigeria's fuel crisis has left millions of people in the country without lights and power for the past few weeks.

Taking to its Facebook page Etisalat Nigeria's management informed subscribers of the possible disruptions to its network.

"The scarcity of petroleum products has impacted every sector of the economy and the provision of telecommunications services is no exception. We are however working with partners and doing all that is possible to continue to deliver quality services in spite of the challenge. Such a prolonged situation threatens our ability to re-fuel all our sites and thus negatively impacting service," reads the Facebook post.

"The company is working assiduously to minimise the impact given the circumstances," it continues.

Etisalat, a United Arab Emirates (UAE) based telco, has operations in 19 countries across the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

In Nigeria Etisalat is the fourth largest mobile operator with more than 18 million subscribers.
