The National Association of Seadogs (NAS) has dismissed the allegation that the association was a cult group.
It described the allegation as false and untrue and called for the unity of the country.
The Akwa Ibom state Capoon, Sancta Riviera Deck of NAS, Anthony Akan stated this during the NAS Annual Feast of Barracuda (FoB) in Uyo Monday.
Akan said the association was well registered with the federal government and does not have any link with cultism. It stated that it was an humanitarian and advocacy group aimed at defending the rights of the less privileged as well as uplifting them from poverty in the society.
The Capoon added that the association was made of disciplined men, noting that the requisite requirement for membership into the organisation was the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate.
“The National Association of Seadogs is not a cult group, but, a well-registered organisation with the federal government through the Federal Ministry of Internal Affairs.
“NAS is an international charitable and humanitarian organizsation comprising of like-minded, intellectual, stimulated and disciplined men, who are committed to fighting the ills of the society.
“Such societal ills comprise of corruption, nepotism, and embezzlement of government funds.
“It should be noted that the organisation does not operate in schools having pulled out of the universities in 1984 and the requisite requirements for membership are the NYSC certificate,” he added.
