The management of Guaranty Trust Bank Plc has denied claim being circulated 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 as false.
According to a release signed by Erhi Obebeduo, the Bank’s Company Secretary and made available to the media by Soulcom, media consultant to the bank, Gtbank management said; ‘‘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 release stated further that GTBank remains committed to providing best-in-class customer experience to all its valued Customers.
‘‘We thank you for your continued support and patronage,’.
