General Manager, Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON), Mr. Chinedu Chukwuji has assured all members of COSON yet to receive their share from the N100 million royalty that everything is being done to ensure that the money gets to them.
He said officials of the organisation are working tirelessly to ensure that the money gets to them. “ I know that some people think that the distribution is over and they have been forgotten. That is not true. Though, we have paid hundreds of members, especially with respect to the general distribution, I am aware that we still have a significant number of members who have not received their royalties. With respect to the specific distribution, much of it is still being processed. We are handling a significant amount of money belonging to diverse people and we need to take every care to do it diligently. I call for some patience. The promise I make is that every COSON member with his name on the register as at May 19, 2012, the agreed cut-off date, will be paid, full stop”, he said. See details in Features.
