In a short dispatch from the United States, Mr. Gull indicated that the NPA Managing Director personally withdrew the US$1.5 Million under the title ‘Special Order’ and made away with the money without any written communication from the Port of Buchanan account department.

Regarding his official public response to the allegation that links him to corruption at the Buchanan Port, his page indicated, “I won’t be the sacrificial lamb”.
“I am safe now, I can talk, if it wasn’t about my integrity, I would have kept quiet “he emphasized.
