United Cement Company of Nigeria Limited (UniCem) has debunked claims that the company is planning to relocate from Calabar, the Cross River State capital to Lagos.
This follows reports making rounds by the Cross River State-owned Newspaper to the effect that the alleged planned relocation had caused internal crisis in the company.
In a press statement signed by the company’s Corporate Affairs Director, Ayi Ita Ayi and made available to newsmen on Thursday, June 18, UniCem said there was no iota of truth in the report.
“The United Cement Company of Nigeria Limited (UniCem) has declared as false, a publication on the front page of the Weekend Chronicle of Friday, June 19, 2015 with the caption “Crisis rocks UniCem over relocation plan. The report is false, misleading and lacking in truth,” the report read in part.
Ayi stated that UniCem operates in Calabar and will never be relocated to Lagos for any reason.
He advised members of the public not to take, seriously, the said publication as nothing in the report reflects the state of affairs in the company.
