Dangote Industries Ltd owned by the African richest man, Aliko Dangote, has written Ohaneze Ndigbo to refute claims that the company’s trucks were being used to transport Almajiris from the North to the Southern part of the country.
In a letter dated May 27 and addressed to the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, John Nwodo, the Group Chief Communications Officer of the company, Anthony Chiejina, dismissed the allegation as “spurious and misleading”.
The company stated that its trucks are duly permitted to transport only cement, limestone, high grade gypsum, sugar, salt, seasoning and branded sacks/bags.
The company pleaded with Ohanaeze and the general public to report any Dangote truck driver involved in such with evidence and details such as such as truck type, content, colour, plate number, location and if possible, photographs.
Such reports should be sent to 08131768000, 08131771111, 08131770999 and 08131771000, the letter concluded.
