    I am still wondering what they are doing with money. The more you have the more you want more. Odd world.

    Nigeria is a failed country by allowing a very few people to hold the Country to economic ransom. These monies will not be paid unless their assets are seized and disposed off,they will do everything with our money to circumvent any forms of recovery strategy. Put them behind bars.

    1. Published figures are highly corrupted and inflated figures. They are not a representative of facts and true positions of actual debt burden.

    2. UBA secretly sold “My debt” to AMCON and collected N5 million in a transaction that I had zero debt. In fact UBA was to balance me N160k in that transaction. For years we have been wasting time in court on this issue.

    3. I know about No. 9 in the list. UBA granted N10 billion naira loan to Shell cooperative. Only N7 billion got to cooperative account and the cooperative has been paying interests and capital based on N7 billion but they came chasing the coop for N10 billion loan.
    How can N7b that is serviced every month suddenly become N26 billion that AMCON bought from UBA?

    What happened is that AMCON became opportunity for some bank executives and AMCON executives to make some quick money. So, without the knowledge or agreement of the debtors, banks secretly cooked up the debts figures and use it to collect funds from AMCON, then we don’t know what happened to the spoils of their transactions.

    AMCON secretly went to our “usual” court and obtained judgment debt against the debtors and start to harass some of them for repayments.

    The publication can make meanings to many who don’t know the details, but to me, it means nothing but an attempt to rob people and businesses. Is it morally and legally proper for AMCON to recover debts that never existed in the first instance?
