On Tuesday 18th May 2021, the Global Times ran a misleading publication purporting that the NRA Board and Management proposed to buy a piece of land for $2.8 Million. It turns out that the facts in the story was concocted to serve the interests of detractors aiming to bring down the good image of the institution.
Today Tuesday 19th July 2022, the Global Times Newspaper has published yet another misleading story on the same land issue with the caption "Controversy over NRA $1.8 Million land". The NRA views such publication as unfortunate, unfounded and has further reinforced our view of a media house that lacks credibility.
Firstly, the NRA has never purchased "a one and half lots of land" for $1.8 Million. Such claims can only be made by ill-motivated individuals and ran by rogue media houses. we are an institution that takes into cognizance all Public Financial Management prudence and place high priority on taxpayers money which continues to be key consideration in our corporate negotiations.
Secondly, the NRA owe all its achievements of the last four years to the harmony and camaraderie of both Board and Management of the institution. The assumption of a "big split" between the Board and Management is a figment of one's imagination. Let it be known that in as much as the institution frowns at such unsubstantiated publications, it is also exploring other options amongst which may include litigation against the continuous publication of false information against the National Revenue Authority.
To this end, we want to appeal to so called media professionals to seek clarifications on all matters pertaining to the NRA from the Public Affairs Unit or the Commissioner General before publishing stories relating to the institution.
