‘Don’t sell Benue shares at Dangote Cement’

Benue State All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman Abba Yaro has urged the state government not to sell the 90 million Dangote Cement Plc shares held in trust for indigenes by the Benue Investment and Property Company Limited (BIPC).
In a telephone interview with The Nation, Yaro described the sale of the shares on the floor of the Nigeria Stock Exchange (NSE) as “an attempt to further enslave the people”, urging the House of Assembly to stop it.
A former Director with the defunct NITEL, Mr Adaa Maagbe, expressed concern that the sale was coming a few months to the 2015 general elections and urged the government to rescind the decision in the people’s interest.
Maagbe, who is a senatorial aspirant in Benue North East, queried the reason for the sale of the shares.
BPIC Managing Director Mrs Bridget Seidu did not pick her calls or respond to messages sent to her phone.
