2face Idibia reacts over alleged corruption in COSON

Music icon, 2face Idibia, has called out the management of the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON). 2face in a post on his Instagram page accused COSON of corruption.

According to him: “From the figures shared recently, COSON has lost about N250m to the crisis that erupted with the December 7, 2017, sacking of Chief Tony Okoroji as its chairman. The society collected N200m less than the sum of the previous year and spent over N50m on lawsuits and office security within the year. Simple compliance with the NCC’s directives or submission to the wide call for independent audit to prove the innocence of the directors against allegations of financial misconduct may have saved COSON at least, N230m, that’s assuming the audit cost N20m.’ To worsen issues, the license don kuku expire sef making it criminal for COSON to demand and collect royalties on behalf of members.

Then today we see this: “With respect to the COSON mandate to carry on its operations … COSON has been assured by its team of lawyers that with the various issues still awaiting determination at various courts and with the recent decisions of the Supreme Court of Nigeria, no one has the power to unilaterally stop the operations of COSON.” “Lawyers”, “various issues”, “various courts” because of a simple forensic audit?

Musician work, lawyer and police chop everything finish. My people, no be one chance we don enter so o? If you ask me, na who I go ask?”
