COURT FIXES MAY 7 TO HEAR SUIT FILED AGAINST EXXONMOBIL BY TOP OFFICIAL
The hearing of a suit filed against Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited by a top official, Mr. Paul Arinze, seeking an order to suspend a Special Review Audit in the company has been fixed to May 7 by the National Industrial Court in Lagos on Monday.
The claimant, who is General Manager of the Public and Government Affairs Department (P &GA) of Mobil, is asking the court to suspend a “Special Review” Audit embarked on by Mobil, to probe the affairs of the P&GA, pending conclusion of a routine audit.
He avers that the “Special Review” has been the all-purpose vehicle, used by the defendant to “flush” out Nigerians from positions of authority in the company, and have them replaced by foreigners.
In his suit marked NICN/LA/659/2018, claimant is challenging the said audit, and calling for a review by an independent auditor.
