Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN,) has debunked reports that Skye Bank has been liquidated.
A statement signed by acting director, Corporate Communication, Isaac Okoroafor, said that the report was malicious.
According to him, “The content of a malicious message urging customers of Skye Bank to withdraw their deposits or transfer them to other banks is based on the vile allegation.
“The CBN wishes to state, and emphatically so, that it has not liquidated Skye Bank or any other Deposit Money Bank for that matter.
“The bank also wishes to reiterate its earlier assurance that Skye Bank is not in distress and remains a healthy bank in the Nigerian banking system.”
He assured that the health of the Nigerian banking system remained strong, as “all banks in Nigeria are safe and depositors have no cause to fear over their deposits.”
He, however, said the while Skye Bank had corporate governance challenges, the CBN had since taken proactive steps to resolve the issues identified.
Mr Okoroafor also said that the CBN was satisfied with the efforts of the new management to reposition Skye Bank for effective service delivery.
Accordingly, customers of Skye Bank and other stakeholders are advised to disregard any message purporting a liquidation of the bank.
