Kudos to Vanguard Investors Forum

Dear Investors Forum, thank you so much for championing my struggle to have DataMax Registrars pay my controverted GTB dividend. Your publication of my case in the Vanguard edition of Tuesday, Sept. 17 woke them up from their reverie of false sense of victory over me. After a flurry of telephone calls following the publication, DataMax finally admitted their crime or offence or error and lodged my money on Friday last week. Yes! Vanguard’s ink of altruism has proven mightier than DataMax’s sleight of the accounting pen! I can truly, deeply appreciate you for I am in the news media myself; I work for a private TV station in Anambra State. I can’t thank you enough, my brethren, our print media ambassadors. God bless u all. -UDENTA CHRIS C.

Guinness, PZ has stopped my dividend

For some time now, I have not received my dividend from both P.Z. Industries (Cusson) Plc Ilupeju Lagos and Guinness Nig.Plc Ikeja. Please I want to know if my shares with the two companies have been wished away.  I received my dividend from P.Z. Industries last on 6th Dec 2004 while that of Guiness Nig.Plc was on 8th Dec 2010.

If you changed address and did not inform the registrars, they may still be sending the dividend to your formal address. But if you did not change address, we suspect foul play. Contact   the registrars of the companies to verify the status of the dividend.  For Guinness, contact Zenith Registrars Limited at Plot 89 Ajose Adeogun Street, Victoria Island Extension, Lagos.  Tel: 234-1-2708930-4.
