South African companies operating in other parts of Africa seem to be getting on the wrong side of Nigerian regulators and authorities. MTN has recently not enjoyed good business relations in Nigeria.
John Robbie on Wednesday spoke to Marius Oosthuizen, a lecturer and program manager for the Future of Business in South Africa project at the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS), about local companies doing business in other parts of the continent.
Oosthuizen said MTN took uncalculated risks in Nigeria and their board is possibly guilty of bad governance.
Countries in Africa are worlds apart; we can't lump them all as one country that operates similarly when it comes to business.— Marius Oosthuizen, lecturer and program manager at GIBS
