By Jerry Aguigbo
In a swift response to Allegations of acquisition of 3 properties in UK by Femi Falana (SAN), The Nigeria Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, (NIMASA) has in a statement from it’s Public Relations Unit, signed by an Assistant Director, Edward Osagie (Head PR) debunked this allegation by the respected Jurist.
The statement called on the general public to disregard this allegation as it does not contain any truth whatsoever.
“Our attention has been drawn to the allegation by Femi Falana, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, leveled against the Management of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency NIMASA, bordering on acquiring three properties in England under this regime.
This allegation was made by Senior Advocate Femi Falana Friday on Channels Television Programme “Sunrise.”
We wish to state that there is no truth in the allegations, as NIMASA did not acquire any property in England, as claimed by Femi Falana.
Furthermore, the Agency has not acquired any property in any foreign country in over 30 years,” Osagie said.
NIMASA is therefore, demanding that Falana retracts this allegation, as it’s very far from the truth.
“While we respect the views of the learned silk on public matters, NIMASA demands that he takes responsibility and retract this false claim.
We also use this medium to caution that he and other members of the public should verify their facts before going public with any information.
The public is hereby advised to disregard the statement.
