Oando Plc challenges SEC's ruling on outcome of audit report
Oando Plc has faulted the ruling of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on the outcome of it’s forensic audit reports on the company on alleged sharp practices in the market, leading to some suspensions.

Oando Plc in a statement released on Friday 31st May 2019 shortly after SEC made public the Forensic audit reports that led to the banning of top members of the company, said the ruling are unsubstantiated, ultra vires, invalid, and has vowed to take all necessary legal steps to make sure the decisions by SEC are upturned by the Court.

The statement released by the company secretary, one Ayotola Jagun reads:

Our attention has been drawn to a press release published by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Friday, May 31, 2019 “Press Release on “Investigation of Oando PLC (the Company)”.

In the statement, the Commission confirms the conclusion of its investigations and that the findings from the report reveal serious infractions by the Company and as part of measures to address these violations, the Commission has directed penalties as follows:

Resignation of the affected Board members of Oando Plc,

The convening of an Extra-Ordinary General Meeting on or before July 1, 2019, to appoint new directors,

1: Payment of monetary penalties by the company and affected individuals and directors,

2: Refund of improperly disbursed remuneration by the affected Board members to the company,

3: Bar of the Group Chief Executive Officer (GCEO) and the Deputy Group Chief Executive Officer (DGCEO) of Oando Plc from being directors of public companies for a period of five (5) years.

Oando is of the view that these alleged infractions and penalties are unsubstantiated, ultra vires, invalid and calculated to prejudice the business of the Company.

The Company has not been given the opportunity to see, review and respond to the forensic audit report and so is unable to ascertain what findings (if any) were made in relation to the alleged infractions and defend itself accordingly before the SEC.

The Company reserves its rights to take all legal steps to protect its business and assets whilst remaining committed to act in the best interests of all its shareholders.”
