Visionscape Sanitation Solutions, a waste management company operating in Lagos State on Tuesday, said it had not received any invitation from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over any matter of fraud.
The Civil Society Network Against Corruption (CSNAC), in April asked the EFCC to investigate the ownership of the firm and its terms of contract with the Lagos State government.
According to the group, its demand was in view of allegations of dubious dealings raised against the company.
However, a statement sent to PREMIUM TIMES, signed by Motunrayo Ellias, the company’s head of Corporate Communications, said the anti-graft agency has never invited Visionscape for questioning.
“The company is not and has never at any point been under investigation,” she said.
“We find the aspersions cast on our organisation by the CSNAC to be malicious. The petition they are peddling is riddled with half-truths and there has been no evidence to prove any of the allegations.
“We continue to focus on delivering the terms of our valid contract with Lagos State which is to provide adequate infrastructure to support an integrated waste management system.
“Due process was followed (in the award of the contract) and the ownership structure is a matter of public record.
“We are confident in the EFCC’s thoroughness, knowing it to be an institution that acts on solid information, not subversive language clearly intended to mislead and cause damage to our corporate brand and image,” the firm said.
