LAGOS— PROFESSIONAL printers, under the auspices of Change at CIPPON, have urged the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed to look into the alleged mismanagement of over N350 million revenue generated by the executive of Chartered Institute of Professional Printers of Nigeria, CIP
Addressing a press conference in Lagos, members of the group led by Mr. Olugbemi Malomo appealed to the Minister to freeze all accounts of CIPPON and set up an investigate team that will look into the mismanagement of over N350 million paid by members in the last 10 years.
His words: “The law says that they can only occupy the position of executive for four years but now they have spent about 10 years in office. This abnormalities needs to stop and we are urging the Ministry of Information to protect the sanctity of the Act by dissolving the current Council with immediate effect on the premise that they are not legally constituted.”
Allegations untrue — Registrar
When Vanguard contacted the Registrar of CIPPON, Mallam Ndagi Abubakar said: “The allegation that executives of the council have been at the helms of affair for about 10 years is totally wrong. We are at meeting now with some council members, so I can’t actually say much but we will come up with our true position at appropriate time.”
