The management of Guinness Nigeria Plc has refuted claims made in an article published in the Brandish pull-out in Vanguard of 13th of June 2013 and also in the online edition.
According to the Corporate Relations Director, Guinness, Mr. Sesan Sobowale, “The story lays false and unsubstantiated claims about the Managing Director of Guinness Nigeria Plc, Mr. Seni Adetu, which portrays him and Guinness in an unfavourable light.
The story alleges the involvement of Mr. Seni Adetu in the controversial dispute between Scanad and Prima Garnet accusing him of nepotism by stating that the Managing Director wrongfully used his influence in the advertising pitch that was held for one of Guinness Nigeria’s brands.
“Guinness Nigeria Plc is a law abiding corporate citizen and acts with the highest professional values in its dealings. The company will at no point in time award any supplier a contract outside of the standard procedure, which is always based on merit. The writer at no point got in touch with any spokesperson or representative of Guinness to have the company’s side of the story.”
