NECA criticises lottery commission over NB closure

The Nigeria Employers’ Consultative Association criticizes the closure of Nigeria Breweries Plc across the nation by Mr Lanre Gbajabiamila, the Director-General of the National Lottery Regulatory Commission.

NECA said that Gbajabiamila’s action had refused to respect the ongoing suit – CA/A/207/2016, NECA & 1 or vs.

AG Federation & 3 others, which is connected to the issue that apparently provoked the closure of the Nigeria Breweries.

It added that the court, since 2016, had directed parties in the case to reserve their status.

The Director-General of NECA, Mr Olusegun Oshinowo, said, I am still in shock that the new helmsman would go out to act in breach of the rule of law.

And utter disapproval of court by shutting down the offices and business premises of Nigeria Breweries Plc in a case still before the Court of Appeal.

Since 2016 when the case was filed in court, the past leadership of the commission had exercised restraint and due respect for the law of the land.”

Oshinowo, therefore, called on the Presidency and the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment to call Gbajabiamila to order, saying his actions were not only illegal, unlawful and ultra vires, “but were counterproductive to the laudable efforts of the Federal Government in improving the ease of doing business in Nigeria.

“He should be called to order to avoid further damage to business and the fragile economy at large,” he added.
