Deputy Minority Leader’s claims against me are false – Alhassan Andani

The immediate past Board Chairman of SADA, Mr. Alhassan Andani, has refuted claims that he diverted SADA money to the AGAMS Group, the parent company of rlg Communications.

He said the allegations made by Deputy Minority Leader, Dominic Nitiwul, on Joy FM and MultiTV’s news analysis programme Newsfile, were a complete fabrication, designed to tarnish his reputation.

Mr. Nitiwul had claimed that the SADA Board Chairman also chaired an rlg Foundation and used his influence to skew SADA’s contracts in favour of AGAMS Groups – an allegation Mr. Andani completely rejected.

The Stanbic Bank Managing Director said there is no existing legal entity called rlg Foundation of which he is the Chairman.

What he chaired was a ‘Water for All Project’ launched by rlg, he said, but added that the company later changed its plans and decided to execute this project through Parliamentarians.

He insisted his involvement in this matter was only to the extent that he Chaired the launch of the project which did not even materialize.

It is therefore palpably false, he said, for anybody to argue that he chaired an rlg Foundation and lobbied investment into rlg’s parent company, AGAMS Group.
