$20m bribery scam: NPA consults AGF over indicted firm’s contract bid

The Nigerian Ports Authority says it has consulted the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, for advice concerning the contract bid by Dredging International (Cyprus), a firm indicted by a Swiss court in a $20m bribery scandal involving top ex-officials of the NPA.

The Managing Director, NPA, Hadiza Usman, disclosed this in Lagos on Monday during an interactive session with the media.

Usman said she raised the issue during a recent board meeting of the organisation and informed members of the board that the NPA was seeking the advice of the AGF regarding the organisation’s continued relationship with Dredging International.
