Senator Hope Uzodimma says he is not indebted to First City Monument Bank.
Uzodinma denied having an account with FCMB and also said he has never borrowed from the bank.
Earlier today, FCMB released its list of delinquent debtors as mandated by the Central Bank of Nigeria and Niger Global Engineering & Technology Company Limited, which is affiliated with Uzodinma, made the list.
In reaction, the Senator admitted that he served on the boards of the companies which were listed, but added that the companies had earlier obtained loans under strict business transactions and had liquidated all such loans.
He said this could be verified by the Credit Bureau Search Portal of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Furthermore, Uzodinma accused his political opponents of orchestrating his listing as a chronic debtor.
“For the bank to publish my name as a debtor, is callous and an attempt to disparage me. I feel pained that people who have worked to the levels of command and leadership are made targets of press war, mischief and ridicule.
I have no banking relationship with FCMB. I haves never opened any account with the bank, talk more of borrowing from it. This is scandalous.”
