The statement reads:

“For the records, the entity was 99 per owned by Next (Nig) International Ltd. and established as its buying office in the 90s and Peter Obi as its CEO.
"At the time Peter Obi became governor of Anambra State in 2006, his wife assumed management of the company, and about one year ago, requested that the company be dissolved under the voluntary strike off of the entity on grounds of dissolution and being inoperational, which is normal in winding up an entity.”
