CONTRARY to rumours making rounds on the impending sack and/or resignation of the managing director of the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company Plc., (nahco aviance), the company’s Board has thrown its weight behind the managing director, Norbert Bielderman.
The Board, in a statement, dissociated itself from what it termed unfounded, malicious and false information to the effect that the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Company, Mr. Norbert Bielderman, has been sacked or forced to resign.
The statement read in part, “for the avoidance of doubt, Mr. Norbert Bielderman remains the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Company. He has not and did not at any point resign his appointment; neither did the Board of Directors request same from him at any time. We are in full support of the MD/CEO and the great work he is doing. We therefore wholly endorse his various initiatives aimed at further consolidating the leadership position of the Company in the ground handling sub – sector of the Nigerian aviation industry.
Also, he is not being investigated by the authority, law enforcement agency or anti-graft commission for any breach of the law. We regard all attempts to lump or attach the person of the MD/CEO together with matters in which he was completely innocent and not a person of interest; as not only malicious, but also a manifestation of extreme wickedness”.
Nahco is a publicly – listed Company of international repute, hence any change in leadership would be communicated to regulators; and to all stakeholders and the general public after such had been duly approved by regulators, the statement reads.
