The Nigeria Network of NGOs has debunked associations with the NESprogram following the display of its logo in correspondences being circulated online. The NESprogram announces giving loans without collateral to Nigerians on its website at https://nesprogram.com
In a press release issued by the NNGO, the group claimed that the NESprogram is using its logo without authorization. It explained that, “The Nigeria Network of NGOs has been made aware of various correspondences being circulated via e-mail, from Internet websites, text messages and via regular mail associating us with NESprogram at https://nesprogram.com. We are alarmed by the false and unauthorized use of our logo on the NESprogram website and all communications related to this organisation.”
The group reiterated its non-association with the NESprogram stressing that “the Nigeria Network of NGOs wishes to warn the public at large about our non-association with the NESprogram/and or its official and to note that the Nigeria Network of NGOs is not in any way associated and neither are we sponsors of the NESprogram.
“The Nigeria Network of NGOs does not run such schemes and strongly recommends that recipients of any correspondence from the NESprogram should exercise extreme caution in respect of such. We encourage anyone having issues with the NESprogram to report directly to the Special Control Unit on Money Laundering via firstname.lastname@example.org .”
The NNGO however revealed that certain measures have been taken to ensure its logo is removed in all correspondences. “We have written officially to NESprogram through email@example.com asking for the removal of our logo from its website at https://nesprogram.com/ and all communications products that may have our logo.
“We have also reached out to Tucows Domains Inc registrants for this website to report this abuse. We are aware that this site was registered by Contact Privacy Inc. Customer 0153041206 with telephone number +1.4165385457 and firstname.lastname@example.org, we are now asking our lawyers to contact our Canadian counterparts to take necessary legal actions.”
The Nigeria Network of NGOs said it remains committed to its vision of promoting interconnectivity at the grassroots, provide opportunities for CSOs/NGOs/CBOs and PVOs to contribute to the advancement of national and global peace through developmental activities focused at the grassroots, whilst networking with each other and other national and international agencies, with the aim of meeting Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
