Leading brewery firm, Nigerian Breweries Plc, has reacted to media reports that it shielded on its Dutch Chief Executive Officer from being thoroughly probed after he was accused of being involved in corruption.
In a statement signed by its Corporate Affairs Director, Ms Sade Morgan, the company said it does not tolerate corruption or bribery of any of its employees, no matter how highly place he is.
According to Nigerian Breweries, the matter being reported was looked into, with both internal and external audit and investigation conducted in conjunction with the board of Heineken.
“Nigerian Breweries Plc is aware of the recent publication by an online news platform about an alleged incident that occurred in early 2017.
“At HEINEKEN, we do not tolerate bribery or corruption at any level. If an allegation emerges, a thorough investigation is carried out to establish the facts and, if necessary disciplinary action is taken –regardless of the role or position.
“In this case, we took exactly that approach and moved quickly to comprehensively address the issue.
“Both the Board of Nigerian Breweries and HEINEKEN conducted an internal and external audit and investigation,” the statement said.
“The board and management of Nigerian Breweries Plc remain committed to upholding Nigerian laws and managing our operations in the most responsible and compliant way,” the statement assured.
