The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has distanced itself from company clamouring for adverts for its 50th anniversary.
The oil and gas sector regulator said it is not celebrating any 50yh years anniversary and has not commissioned any media organisation to do a publication in that regard.
In a statement issued by its Head, Public Affairs, DPR, Mr. Paul Osu in Lagos said: “the DPR’s attention has been drawn to the activities of a company named, Brooklands New Media.
“The company has been soliciting for materials, profiles and advert placements from companies for a purported commemorative special publication celebrating 50 years of the DPR.
“We wish to inform the general public that DPR is not celebrating any 50 years anniversary and we have not commissioned Brooklands New Media to do a publication in that regard.
”We wish to reiterate to the general public that DPR does not have any affiliation with the company, and they are not acting on our behalf in any guise“.
The statement also noted that any firm that deals with Brooklands New Media was therefore doing so at its own risk as the regulatory agency would not be held liable.
