The Director, Public Relations, Kelvin Yang, disclosed this in a statement.

He was responding to a news story in the media with headline “$176b Revenue at Risk as Huawei moves to sue FG in London over $304M e-customs project.”

Yang, however, urged media outlets to exercise caution and verify their sources before publishing news related to Huawei or any other company, as false or misleading news could have serious consequences, including damaging the reputation of companies and harming their relationships with partners and customers.

He further said that Huawei remains committed to its long-term partnership with Nigeria and would continue exploring opportunities to support its technological development, adding that it was essential to state that Huawei Technologies Nigeria Limited is the technical partner in the e-custom project.
