Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Mrs. Hadiza Bala Usman, has vowed not to bow on her stance to rid the NPA of corrupt practices.
She also said she will not be cowed or intimidated into conforming to corrupt practices of cheating the Federal Government of its revenues.
In a statement she issued on Thursday in Lagos, Usman disclosed that the Federal Government had ordered an investigation into the books of NPA following fraud allegations against her.
“My attention has been drawn to malicious lies being bandied around by one Prince Henry Nwazuruahu on my person. I challenge him to bring up evidence on any such meeting with any APC chieftain and any monies being given.
“I challenge him to provide the authorship to this report, whom I shall file a suit against in the court of law for defamation of character.
“In the last few days, I have faced a barrage of false malicious lies against my person in the media and I know the sponsors of this. I will not budge on my position on compliance to Federal Government of Nigeria policies.
“I have been issued with death threats and veiled messages conveying that my life is at risk because of the stance I have taken.
No false media attacks or threats to my life will stand in the way of my doing the right thing.
Finally, we have not received any such notification by the presidency of an investigation into our financial books; and indeed we are open to any of such investigation as we have nothing to hide,” the NPA boss said.
