The agaency also disclosed that this is in line with the vision of the Director General, Dr. Dakuku Peterside which is in accordance with the agency’s Medium Term Strategic Growth Plan, part of which is to enhance its revenue.

‘‘We have awarded a debt recovery contract which is totally different from what Global West was doing for NIMASA. The contract was not awarded to the Chairman of the APC in Rivers State. It was awarded to Snecou Nigeria Limited and we advertised the contract in several newspapers. So I don’t see what is wrong with awarding a contract to get our money from debtors,”said Dr Dakuku Peterside,DG,NIMASA.
