Amnesty denies planning to fraudulently sell govt assets
Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) has denied planning to fraudulently sell government assets.
In a statement, yesterday, in Abuja, by Thomas Peretu, Media Adviser to the Interim Administrator, Maj.-Gen. Barry Ndiomu (rtd), PAP said it was wicked to assume that its chief executive engineered the auction for selfish reasons.
The response, the organisation noted, was to set things straight, as silence, sometimes, could be mistaken for admittance.
Reports had accused PAP of planning to sell thousands of empowerment kits, vehicles and other sundry items purchased for beneficiaries.
The statement reads in part: “We wish to unequivocally state that the report, which describes the planned sale as fraudulent, is false in its entirety, and should be totally disregarded because it is a product of mischief makers, who are bent on tarnishing the image of the Interim Administrator of PAP, Maj.-Gen. Barry Ndiomu (rtd).
“For the avoidance of doubt, please note that every government department is required to operate in consonance with Federal Government regulations.”
