Cross River Lagos Office Not For Sale, Says Attorney General

Listen to article

SAN FRANCISCO, March 12, (THEWILL) - The Cross River State Government has denied reports that it has put up its liaison office in Lagos for sale.

A statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Liyel Imoke, Mr Christian Ita, quoted the state Attorney General, Mr Attah Ochinke as describing the report as false.

Ochinke, who is the chairman of the Cross River State Privatisation Council said the report was not only ludicrous but also mischievous.

"The Council has never broached the idea talk less of actually putting up the structure for sale," the statement quoted Ochinke.

While urging members of the public, particularly Cross Riverians to disregard the report, the statement appealed to media practitioners to always verify their reports before going to press.
