Revealing MTNN owners and their stake in the firm (Surprise: A Nigerian Billionaire is the largest single shareholder in the company)   

20 May 2019 : One of the most zealous listing took place last week at the Nigerian Stock Exchange ( NSE ). The market showed a positive response to the listing the following day. The African telecommunication giant MTNN listed 20.35 billion (20,354,513,050) ordinary shares at N90 per share by introduction.

The telecom behemoth joined its peers Dangote Cement Plc, FBN Holdings Plc, Zenith International Bank Plc, Access Bank Plc, Lafarge Africa Plc, Seplat Petroleum Development Company Plc and United Bank for Africa Plc on the most stringent corporate governance and listing standards of the NSE – Premium Board.
