Heritage Bank Limited has replied to the report that the bank is next in line for the takeover of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). The report emerged after CBN announced that Skye Bank management has been dissolved. In its website, Heritage Bank calls the report "falsehood and reckless journalism meant to destroy the emerging bank". Continue to read full statement below…
Our attention has been drawn to an obnoxious tweet by a news blog, Sahara Reporters, which has alluded to the fact that the Management and Board of Heritage Bank is “next in line” for dissolution by the Central Bank of Nigeria.
This is falsehood and at best reckless journalism meant to destroy the emerging bank. For the avoidance of doubt, the Central Bank of Nigeria has no such plan towards the bank.
Consequently, Heritage Bank wishes to encourage customers of the bank and the general public to disregard the wicked misinformation, clearly borne out of the imagination of the mischief makers and continue enjoying the excellent service the bank is rendering to its growing clientele.
Heritage Bank will not also sit back and allow its hard earned reputation to be tarnished on the pages of an irresponsible blog. The bank will also leave no stone unturned to ensure that those peddling unfounded rumours and speculations are brought to book.
