Legendary Musician in the Nigerian Music Industry, 2Face Idibia has raised a cry over corruption in the management of the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON)

According to him, “From the figures share recently, COSON has lost about N250m to the crisis that erupted with the December 7, 2017 sacking of Chief Tony Okoroji as ‘chairman’.

“The society collected N200m less than the sum of the previous year and spent over N50m on lawsuits and office security within the year. Simple compliance with the NCC’s directives or submission to the wide call for independent audit to prove the innocence of the directors against allegations of financial misconduct may have saved COSON at least, N230m, that’s assuming the audit cost N20m’.

“To worsen issues, the license don kuku expire sef making it criminal for COSON to demand and collect royalties on behalf of members.

“Then today we see this: “With respect to the COSON mandate to carry on its operations … COSON has been assured by its team of lawyers that with the various issues still awaiting determination at various courts and with the recent decisions of the Supreme Court of Nigeria, no one has the power to unilaterally stop the operations of COSON.” “Lawyers”, “various issues”, “various courts” because of a simple forensic audit?
