NEMA DEBUNKS REPORTS THAT IT HOISTED A STRANGE FLAG AT ITS OFFICE HEADQUARTERS

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has debunked reports that it hoisted a strange flag at the headquarters of the Agency in Abuja.


This comes after an image emerged online with various captions alleging that a strange flag was hoisted at the NEMA office.


The agency, in a statement issued and signed by its PRO, Manzo Ezekiel, debunked the reports, stating that the allegations are false and it has never hoisted any flag.


Part of the statement reads; ‘’It is unfortunate that the picture in circulation was taken by suspected mischief makers on Friday 13th August 2021, at the commissioning of NEMA’s newly upgraded Emergency Call Centre. The Centre was upgraded with supports from the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre, that has also provided food assistance to persons affected by insurgency in the North East and banditry in the North West in 2018 and this year.


‘’Flags are very important national symbols. Therefore, it was normal to have flags of Nigeria and that of Saudi Arabia placed behind representatives of the two nations at a bilateral function such as the commissioning of the upgraded Call Centre that was funded by an agency of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the benefits of Nigerians. It should be noted that present at the function were representatives of the Embassy of the Saudi Arabia and a team from the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre. Afterwards, the Saudi Flag was immediately removed.’’
