Guinness Nigerian Plc, the Nigerian subsidiary of British multinational beverage and alcoholic firm, on Thursday, formally opened its new £6.2 million ultra-modern headquarters located at Cocoa Industries Road, Ogba, Lagos.
This is coming several weeks after the company denied reports making rounds that it plans to exit Nigeria or relocate its operations to Ghana.
Delivering her speech at the occasion, the Chairman of Guinness Nigeria, Dr Omobola Johnson, said the ceremony also doubled as a celebration of the 72nd Anniversary of Guinness Nigeria’s consistent business in the country.
The Guinness Nigeria complex is reported to have a bar, game room, gymnasium and modern office facilities among others.
