Nilkare and Kalit deny report

National, Normal

TWO former executives of the Independent Public Business Corporation have distanced themselves from a news report of changes at the organisation that was published in this newspaper yesterday.
Robert Nilkare and Kelly Kalit told The National yesterday in separate statements that they had nothing to do with the story and were disappointed that the story was published without them being approached for their comments.
“Today, The National incorrectly reported that I have been sacked from the IPBC and was planning to sue the organisation.
“My contract of employment with IPBC actually expired,” Mr Nilkare said
“I have established my own project advisory business and am currently involved in projects that include major national companies and State-owned organisations (SoEs).”
He described the report as potentially damaging to his business and reputation.“I will not be suing the IPBC nor am I part of any group that is seeking any form of legal action against the organsation.”
Mr Nilkare remains on the board of some SoEs that he was in charge of when at IPBC.
Meanwhile, Mr Kalit said he was not a party to the media statement, nor was he a party to any lawsuit against IPBC.
Mr Kalit is now involved in a major Government project.
Mr Nilkare, Mr Kalit, Brian Yombon and David Kari were executive managers at the IPBC involved in managing SoEs under the control of IPBC.
