NPA does not operate secret account with us ― Unity Bank
Unity Bank plc has refuted claims by a certain whistleblower that the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) operated a secret account containing the sum of $1 billion with the bank.
The lender in a statement on Tuesday noted that the said claim is false, baseless and lacking in merit whatsoever.
It said the clarification has become necessary following certain online reports citing the whistleblower’s petition to President Muhammadu Buhari.
“As a responsible organisation conducting its business with the utmost professionalism and due regard for all extant regulatory and statutory requirements, the bank’s banking relationship with the NPA is without any blemish.
“We advise the general public to ignore the entirety of the spurious report, which apparently was concocted deliberately for mischief.
“We are confident that the relevant apparatus of government must have investigated the alleged whistleblower’s claim, found the same untrue, and therefore unworthy of any further consideration in the circumstances,” the statement read in part.
The bank said it remains determined and focused to provide transparent banking services to all her customer’s within the ambit of the law and duty of confidentiality.
