The Board of Directors of Jabi Lake Mall, the venue where Naira Marley had his recent concert in Abuja, has issued a statement in regards to the situation.
The whole drama started when Naira Marley and Big Brother’s KimOprah hosted a show at the Jabi Lake Mall Car Park with so many people in attendance.
The event caused public outrage, because Nigeria is still on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
After this outing, the Federal Government, in response to this, banned ExecuJet for flying the celebrities and also shut down the Jabi Lake Mall.
As a result of this, the Mall has released a new statement, issued by the board of directors where it denied authorizing the concert. Accoring to the letter, an employee took the illegal decision to host the event on the property without informing superiors and shareholder s only got to know about it via social media.I
ts statement below:
“Shareholders of Jabi Lake Mall are fully cooperating with the FCT Ministry and support any and all governmental action against all those who orchestrated this irresponsible that has marred the reputation of the Mall that has to date fully ensured a safe and healthy business environment for both the tenants and customers. Shareholders main concern at this time is for the tenants survival of their businesses and the employees’ welfare as well as the comfort and convenience of their customers. Knowing that Jabi Lake Mall has pharmacies, grocery stores, food outlets and other essential services, they are working hard to get these stores reopened so the residents of Abuja are not inconvenienced. Knowing that the current financial climate has already been a blow to businesses, they are working hard to get the mall reopened so that these businesses can continue to service their customers, generate revenue, pay their staff and pay their taxes.”Follow us on Instagram @sofovilla | Follow us on Twitter @sofovilla | Like our page on Facebook via @sofovillamedia
