MTN's Nigerian operations has transferred 232 employees to Ericsson and Huawei as part of a network maintenance outsourcing agreement.
However the fate of 20 employees that MTN no longer needs, but were reportedly turned down for employment transfer by the managed services providers is still in limbo.
MTN signed the managed services agreements with Ericsson and Huawei last October as part of a cost cutting exercise relating to its 10,000 towers across the country.
The transfered employees have been guaranteed the same wage and conditions by the new employers for a year, while severance packages are available if the remaining 20 staff are made redundant.
