GTBank Debunks Claim That It Was Asked To Pay N14B To Innoson

GTBank have come out to debunk the claim by Innoson Group that the Supreme court of Nigeria had ordered the bank to pay N14Billion to Innoson Group of Companies.

In a press statement released by GTBank, the bank described the information as false and mischievous stating that there was no order by the supreme court directing the bank to pay an amount of money to any of its debtor customer.

The statement reads;

“The attention of GTBank has been drawn to false, mischievous and malicious statements circulating in the news and social media in respect of a purported directive by the Supreme Court of Nigeria to the Bank to make payments to one of its debtor Customers.

The Bank’s Customers and the General Public are hereby kindly urged to disregard these false statements as nothing could be further from the truth. There was no directive or Order issued by the Supreme Court of Nigeria to the Bank to make any payment to any of its debtor Customers.

The Bank as a highly responsible corporate citizen will in accordance with its culture and tradition refrain from making comments about on-going litigation matters and will continue to focus on using legal means to recover its bad debts. It must be emphasised that the Bank remains undeterred in its recovery drive against recalcitrant debtors.

We again reiterate that there is no iota of truth in the falsehood being peddled by desperate and mischievous elements and the General Public should disregard same in its entirety.

The Bank remains committed to providing best-in-class customer experience to all its valued Customers.

We thank you for your continued support and patronage.

For the bank,
Erhi Obebeduo
Company Secretary”.
