Contrary to the speculations making the rounds that the Managing Director of the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO Aviance), Mr Norbert Bielderman has been forced to resign his appointment by the board of the handling company, the managing director said the rumour was farther from the truth.
Bielderman had earlier attributed the rumour to a very few who did not like his rising profile as witnessed in how he been able to raise the bar at the handling company.
Supporting his position, the Board of Directors of the company has dissociated itself from what it also termed unfounded, malicious and false information to the effect that the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer has been sacked or forced to resign.
A statement from the Board said: “for the avoidance of doubt, Mr Norbert Bielderman remains the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
He has not and did not at any point resign his appointment; neither did the Board of Directors request same from him at any time. We are in full support of the MD/CEO and the great work he is doing. We therefore wholly endorse his various initiatives aimed at further consolidating the leadership position of the Company in the ground handling sub – sector of the Nigerian aviation industry.
“Also, he is not being investigated by the authority, law enforcement agency or anti-graft commission for any breach of the law. We regard all attempts to lump or attach the person of the MD/CEO together with matters in which he was completely innocent and not a person of interest; as not only malicious, but also a manifestation of extreme wickedness”.
