The management of Guaranty Trust Bank, GTBank, has reacted to a false report that is being circulated across the media claiming the Supreme court ordered the bank to make a payment of N12bn to Innoson Motors Boss.
The bank maintained that there is no iota of truth in the news and has therefore urged the general public and its customers to ignore such any of such malicious claims.
Attached below is the official statement from the bank:
The attention of Guaranty Trust Bank Plc (“the Bank”) has been drawn to false, mischievous and malicious statementscirculating 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 GTBank 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.
