NLNG denies allegation in $1.05bn dividend account - ITREALMS


The management of the Nigeria LNG Limited (NLNG) has denied allegation of illegal withdrawal of US$1.05billion from NNPC’s (NLNG) dividend account, reports 

Speaking through its General Manager, External Relations and Sustainable Development, Eyono Fatayi-Williams, NLNG in a press statement available to 
ITREALMS, denied the allegations that the news making a round that House of Representatives were investigating an alleged illegal withdrawn is false.

NLNG also noted that although its Managing Director/CEO Tony Attah and the GMD, NNPC, Mele Kyari are signatories to this account, they have not been involved in any way in money laundering and "squandering".

Part of the press statement read:

"For the purpose of clarity, NLNG wishes to state that the company, as a private limited liability company, duly pays dividends to its shareholders and continues to conduct its business in full compliance with regulations and the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

"NLNG strictly follows extant protocols in the payment of dividends as value generated from the business and ensures that the process concerning payment of dividends to its shareholders is transparent and in full compliance with the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

"Expectedly, NLNG’s involvement in the process ends with the payment of such dividend. The governance and controls around the Company's finances also makes the allegations against the Managing Director and the GMD an impossible scenario and therefore members of the public are advised to disregard the allegations as it is totally baseless and simply untrue.

"NLNG also wishes to emphasize that it continues to bring value to both its shareholders and the country, utilising best practices in the industry to monetise gas resources and contribute to the socio-economic wellbeing of the country in line with its vision of helping to build a better Nigeria."
