NDIC begins payment to depositors of 154 failed MFBs

We have fully paid all depositors of 18 failed banks – NDIC

The Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) has commenced payment to depositors of 154 Micro Finance Banks (MFBs) whose licenses were revoked in 2018 by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) over insolvency.

NDIC managing director, Alhaji Umaru Ibrahim, made this known, weekend, at the Corporation’s day at the ongoing 14th edition of Abuja International Trade Fair.

The event scheduled for Sept. 21 to Sept. 29 is with the theme “Remodeling SMEs Financing: Option and Solutions’’.

Ibrahim who was represented by NDIC Director of Research, Mr Mustapha Ibrahim, said that the payment was extended to depositors of six Primary Mortgage Banks (PMBs).

According to Ibrahim, in the last quarter of 2018, the CBN revoked the licences of 154 MFBs and six PMBs due to their insolvency and corporate governance issues.

“Hence, the corporation successfully liquidated the failed banks and has commenced payment to the depositors of the failed banks,’’ Ibrahim said.

He said that the corporation had investigated and mediated to address complaints from bank customers on various issues that affect them.

“As at June 30, the corporation received 35 petitions/complaints from banks customers on various issues such as ATM frauds, unauthorised funds transfer and cheques related issues.

“Investigations were carried out and where necessary and customers were appropriately reprieved,’’ he said.

The NDIC boss said that NDIC would continue to work with CBN to ensure effective supervision of banks and the adherence to prudential guidelines and code of corporate governance for banks.

According to him, this was to ensure their safety and the overall stability of the Nigerian financial system.

He, however, urged small savers to avoid depositing their money with thrift collectors.

“It is imperative to point out the need for traders, artisans, farmers and other small savers to ensure that their savings are deposited in banks or other licensed deposit-taking financial institutions nearest to them.

“This is to avoid losses that could result from incidents of burglaries and other forms of crimes,’’ Ibrahim added.

President of the Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI), Mr Adetokunbo Kayode, identified deposit insurance as one of the important pre-requisites for building confidence of the depositors in the formal banking system.

Kayode who was represented by Mrs Tonia Shoyele, Director-General, ACCI, said that governments in developing and advanced economies grant formal deposit insurance with the aim of reducing the risk of systemic failure of banks.

“By bolstering depositors’ confidence in the stability of the system, deposit insurance may lead to a deeper financial system, which could contribute to higher economic growth rates,’’ he said.
