Lenders’ Day! Full List of Banks that have taken Over Etisalat for Failure to Pay Debt

This is a trending business gist. One of Nigeria’s telecommunication companies, Etisalat has now been taken over by ten major Nigerian lenders.

2. GT Bank

3. First Bank

4. UBA,

5. Fidelity Bank

6. Access Bank,

7. Ecobank,


9. Stanbic IBTC Bank and

10. Union Bank.

    This is too much. Etisalat is in trouble. How can they own ten banks running into billions of dollars. But come to think of it. how come these same banks find it difficult to give loans to Small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs),to fund their business. but they give loans to top shot firms. our banking system needs to improve.

    Quiz no:86, Group :10.
