Pretty Okafor & John Asien.
 
The Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria, PMAN has come out in support of the Director General of the Nigerian Copyright Commission, NCC, Mr. John Asien, who has in recent times been under very serious attack by those one could describe as enemies of the industry and who out to tarnish the image of individuals and corporates working hard to fix the industry for better profitability.


According to a Press Release signed by the President of PMAN, Mr. Pretty Okafor, the music association says that her attention was drawn to an article recently published on Sahara Reporters which contained unfounded allegations of breach of civil rules leveled against the DG of NCC, John Asien, allegations PMAN found not to be in-line with the truth according to documents made available to the Music Union and are attached herein.

The resignation Letter.
Mr. Pretty Okafor said that the evidences available shows that John Asien followed due process in the disposition of his Civil duties contrary to the malicious claims and allegations leveled against him, which are completely baseless and unfounded, urging the NCC Boss to keep his focus on the commission’s ongoing efforts  to eradicate Piracy and to discard the “SMEAR CAMPAIGNS’’ known to have been sponsored by Pirates and unscrupulous elements who seek to undermine the Commission’s commendable efforts in the Creative Sector.
The acceptance of the Resignation letter.

It would be recalled that Mr. John Asien has been facing a lot of challenges lately bothering on issues surrounding his credibility as DG of NCC, with accusations that he never resigned his appointment as Executive Director with the Reproduction Rights Society of Nigeria, REPRONIG, which has here, an attached copy of his resignation letter.

One therefore wonders why enemies of the entertainment industry who are masquerading as stakeholders are chasing shadows trying to harass, intimidate and tarnish the image of a man who has just been appointed and is trying very hard to salvage the remain of a sector damaged by the same people..
