I’m not a beneficiary of renewed FG, Intels contract –Atiku Abubakar

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has dismissed insinuation that he is beneficiary of Federal Goverment’s reinstated Integrated Logistic Services Nigeria Limited, Intels, contract.

He said those linking him to the decision to rescind the cancellation of the contract between Intels and the Federal Government were being mischievous.

Atiku in a statement on Sunday, said: “In January 2021, I made public the sale of my shares in Integrated Logistic Services Nigeria Limited (Intels) to Orlean Investment Group, the parent company of Intels.

The phased sale of those shares that commenced in 2018 peaked in December 2020.

Intels also made public my exit from the oil and gas logistics company, meaning that a different entity now owns those shares I sold.

My divestment from the company that I co-founded has not been reversed.

Consequently, I cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, be a beneficiary of the reinstatement of the boat pilotage monitoring business that was taken away from Intels by the Federal Government.

Therefore, the insinuation that I am a beneficiary of the decision to rescind the cancellation of the contract between Intels and the Federal Government is untrue and should be seen for what it is: mischief,” he added.
