HealthPlus debunks alleged appointment of Chief Transformation Officer
The management of Health Plus Limited has debunked the appointment of Chidi Okoro as the Chief Transformation Officer (CTO) of the company.
In a statement yesterday, in Lagos, the company said the release was not authorised by the company or anybody acting on its behalf, noting that the appointment of the CTO is false, wrongful and illegal and should be totally ignored.
“It is the handiwork of unscrupulous foreign and local businesswomen and businessmen intent on reaping where they have not sown simply because they now see opportunities from the COVID-19 pandemic, like scavengers and vultures.
“It is instructive to note that the Chairman of the Board of Directors resigned two days ago and another Director resigned five weeks ago. Both gentlemen had been displeased and frustrated by the impasse and its debilitating effect on the company, its fortunes, employees and above all, the sheer injustice occasioned by it all,” the statement said.
The company urged the general public, the Pharmacist Council of Nigeria, staff, customers, vendors, landlords, bankers and all stakeholders “to totally disregard and ignore the earlier authorised release from those who have no real stake in the company, its employees or Nigeria.
“Mrs. Bukky George remains the founder and Chief Executive Officer of the company and is focused on preserving and growing this national treasure,” the statement read.
