Amina Oyagbola, HR Executive at MTN Nigeria is quitting the nation’s largest mobile phone company, Technology Times has learnt this afternoon.
Oyagbola who has held various positions including of Head of Regulatory and Corporate Affairs at MTN Nigeria will be leaving the mobile company at the end of this year following what insiders described as “voluntary resignation.”
MTN Nigeria did not officially comment on Oyagbola’s but people conversant with situation within the mobile phone company say that more heads are expected to roll in an impending sack expected to be effected before year end.
A source very conversant with situation within MTN Nigeria claimed that Oyagbola’s impending departure from the mobile phone company may not be unconnected with top management’s instruction to her to fire 175 employees of the organization.
After unit heads within MTN Nigeria compiled the lists of employees totaling 175 Nigerians to be eased out of the mobile phone company, Oyagbola, who heads HR, was alleged to have refused to sign off the list, Technology Times learnt.
According to her, “the company is making enough money” and would have been a tough decision to execute, our source said.
Following her refusal to sign off on the memo to axe the 175 MTN Nigeria employees, she was offered what is known within MTN as the “other option” which translates to choosing to voluntarily resign than being fired.
Technology Times further learnt that Oyagbola chose to leave and tendered a resignation that will take effect at the end of this month.
MTN Nigeria will issue an official statement on her resignation later today a company source said in response to enquiry on the matter.
