Original head office

 She explained that the Bol building was a replacement for the Ship House in Abuja erected with money from the NPA’s pension fund but was taken over by the Defense Ministry who are the original owners of the Bol building. The bank of the industry was relocated to the Bol building after its original head office on Broad Street, Lagos was gutted by fire.

She stated: “We have written to the Ministry for them to get the necessary approval for the property to be reverted back to the Nigerian Ports Authority Superannuation Fund.”

She also explained that the money which was used in erecting the Ship House was part of the assets of the Superannuation fund being used by the authority to meet the financial obligations to its retirees.

Recall that the Nigerian Ports Authority Pensioners Welfare Association, NPAPWA, had last year mounted a campaign to recover the prime asset.

The group had allegedly accused the Bank of Industry of leasing out part of the proceeds to themselves without recourse to the owners, NPA Superannuation Fund.
