Nigeria's Apex Bank Revokes Heritage Bank’s Operating Licence

Appoints Deposit Insurance Corporation as liquidator of the bank



The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has revoked the banking licence of Heritage Bank Plc with immediate effect.


According to a statement by the Ag. Director, Corporate Communications of the Appex bank, Hakama Ali, on Monday, said the move was under its mandate to promote a sound financial system in Nigeria, and in exercise of its powers under Section 12 of the Banks and Other Financial Act (BOFIA) 2020.


According to Ali, the bank had breached Section 12 (1) of BOFIA, 2020, adding that the Board and Management of the bank have not been able to improve the bank’s financial performance, a situation which constitutes a threat to financial stability.

“This follows a period during which the CBN engaged with the bank and prescribed various supervisory steps intended to stem the decline. Regrettably, the bank has continued to suffer and has no reasonable prospects of recovery, thereby making the revocation of the licens know .


To this effect, the CBN has appointed the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) as the liquidator of the bank under Section 12 (2) of BOFIA, 2020.

“We wish to assure the public that the Nigerian financial system remains on a solid footing. The action we are taking today reflects our continued commitment to take all necessary steps to ensure the safety and soundness of our financial system,” the statement added.

Herbert Wigwe's death: I'm deeply Shaken – Saraki

Herbert Wigwe's death: I'm deeply Shaken – Saraki




A former president of the Nigeria Senate Dr Bukola Saraki has expressed his sadness over the unfortunate helicopter crash that claimed the lives of Herbert Wigwe, his wife and son in California, United States.



Saraki wrote:

I'm deeply shaken by the news of the helicopter crash in California that claimed the lives of my friend and brother, Herbert Wigwe, the Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings Plc, his dear wife, son, and Abimbola Ogunbanjo, the Group Chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group Plc, alongside two others.


As the longtime CEO and Group Managing Director of Access Bank, Herbert was instrumental in transforming what was once a small commercial bank into one of the top five banks in the nation.


As we mourn his loss, we must view the passing of Herbert and these prominent individuals not just as a personal tragedy for their families but also as a significant loss for the business community and the nation at large.


May the Almighty grant solace to the Wigwe family, the Ogunbanjo family, the Access Bank Group, and all families affected by this tragedy.

World Bank: $93 billion boost for resilient recovery in world’s poorest countries

World Bank: $93 billion boost for resilient recovery in world’s poorest countries

$23.5 billion in donor contributions to IDA, World Bank fund for the poor








The world Bank has in a statement Wednesday announced $93 billion replenishment package of the International Development Association (IDA) to help low-income countries respond to the COVID-19 crisis

The package is also to build a greener, more resilient, and inclusive future, according to the statement by the body. This was agreed over a two-day meeting hosted virtually by Japan, the largest ever mobilized in IDA’s 61-year history. 

According to the bank: the financing brings together $23.5 billion of contributions from 48 high- and middle-income countries with financing raised in the capital markets, repayments, and the World Bank’s own contributions.

The World Bank is an international financial institution that provides loans and grants to the governments of low- and middle-income countries for the purpose of pursuing capital projects.

Read The full statement:

WASHINGTON, Dec. 15, 2021 – The World Bank today announced a $93 billion replenishment package of the International Development Association (IDA) to help low-income countries respond to the COVID-19 crisis and build a greener, more resilient, and inclusive future. The financing brings together $23.5 billion of contributions from 48 high- and middle-income countries with financing raised in the capital markets, repayments, and the World Bank’s own contributions.



The financing package, agreed over a two-day meeting hosted virtually by Japan, is the largest ever mobilized in IDA’s 61-year history. IDA’s unique leveraging model enables it to achieve greater value from donor resources – every $1 that donors contribute to IDA is now leveraged into almost $4 of financial support for the poorest countries.



“Today’s generous commitment by our partners is a critical step toward supporting poor countries in their efforts to recover from the COVID-19 crisis,” said World Bank Group President David Malpass. “We are grateful for the confidence our partners have in IDA as a non-fragmented and efficient platform to tackle development challenges and improve the lives of millions of people around the world.”



The funds will be delivered to the world’s 74 poorest countries under the 20th replenishment (IDA20) program, which focuses on helping countries recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis. In these countries, the ongoing pandemic is worsening poverty, undermining growth, and jeopardizing the prospects of a resilient and inclusive development. Countries are struggling with falling government revenues; increasing debt vulnerabilities; rising risks to fragility, conflict, and instability; and dropping literacy rates. About a third of IDA countries are facing a looming food crisis.



To help countries build back greener, a substantial portion of these funds go to tackling climate change, with a focus on helping countries to adapt to rising climate impacts and preserve biodiversity. IDA will also deepen support to countries to better prepare for future crises, including pandemics, financial shocks, and natural hazards. While IDA20 will support countries globally, resources are increasingly benefiting Africa, which will receive about 70 percent of the funding.



With this strong package, IDA will be able to scale up its support in the pandemic and address health challenges, helping 400 million people receive essential health and nutrition resources. The social safety nets program is also expected to reach as many as 375 million people.


The IDA20 program has more ambitious policy commitments that will support countries in prioritizing investments in human capital, covering issues such as education, health and nutrition, vaccines, safety nets, and support for people with disabilities. IDA will also increase its ambition in addressing other major development challenges such as gender inequality, job creation, and situations of fragility, conflict and violence, including in the Sahel, the Lake Chad region, and the Horn of Africa. A continued emphasis on governance and institutions, debt sustainability, and digital infrastructure interventions will help foster economic and social inclusion.

Due to the urgent development needs of IDA countries, the replenishment was advanced by one year. IDA20 will cover the period of July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2025. The IDA20 policy architecture builds on the strong foundation of IDA19, with enhancements to make IDA20 even more ambitious and fit for today’s challenges.

IDA19 achievements key to IDA20 include:


Strong COVID-19 response with nearly 70 countries benefiting from IDA financing for vaccines, health professionals’ training, and hospital equipment.


Over 60 percent of climate financing, in fiscal year 2021 alone, focused on adaptation and resilience; IDA helped 62 countries institutionalize disaster risk reduction plans.


Greater debt transparency through the Sustainable Development Finance Policy introduced in IDA19, with 19 countries publishing annual and timely debt reports in fiscal year 2021.

EFCC Charges POS Operators on Compliance with Regulations in Gombe













The Gombe Zonal Commander of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC Babashani Umar Sanda has charged operators and agents of Point of Sale, POS, in the Zone to strictly comply with all extant laws in the discharge of their duties as failure to do so will attract severe sanctions.

Babashani gave the charge on Wednesday 15th September, 2021 in Gombe, when he received in audience Abdulrahman Aliyu, the Chairman of Gombe State Association of Mobile Money and Bank Agents, and members of his association.

“We invited you here to have a discussion regarding an emerging and dangerous trend, where many fraudulent individuals are resorting to the usage of POS to defraud or withdraw proceeds of their nefarious activities.








“The law is very clear on the usage of POS terminals and CBN has its guidelines and regulations also, but to us, Section 37 (2) of the Cybercrimes (Prohibition, Prevention, Etc.) Act is sacrosanct as that has to do with one of the most important factors in your operations which is KYC,” he said.

The Zonal Commander regretted the absence of record keeping by agents and operators of POS terminals, saying that sometimes it makes tracing of fraudsters cumbersome and the operators end up being victims and paying for crimes they know nothing about.

Responding, the Chairman of Association of Mobile Money and Bank Agents, Abdulrahman Aliyu assured of his organization’s commitment in meeting up with requirements demanded by law but regretted that some illegal operators were giving them bad name.

EFCC Cautions Banks Against Forex Malpractices

EFCC Cautions Banks Against Forex Malpractices


The Commander of the Uyo Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, ACE I Nwanneka Nwokike has warned bank officials against providing foreign exchange to customers who have no intention of travelling outside Nigeria.

Nwokike who gave the warning on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 when he met with Chief Compliance Officers of Banks in the zone, said indications have emerged that some bank customers present fake travel documents including false flight bookings, to obtain foreign exchange.

According to him, the EFCC under the leadership of Abdulrasheed Bawa, has vowed to clamp down on Forex offenders, be they bank Officials or customers. "Always report Bank officials who collude with criminal elements to collect foreign exchange. There are very strong indications that it is happening, … go back and sensitize your staff, to ensure that they always do the right thing because 'doing the right thing' has become the new normal; therefore proper verification of documents presented by customers for Forex must be done. Again, the Commission will not entertain excuses, and will no longer look away when Banks fail to do their due diligence," Nwokike said.


While responding to the issue of customers who book foreign flights and cancel after collecting foreign exchange from banks, the Deputy Zonal Commander ACE II Hamidu S. Bawa instructed the Compliance Officers to report such customers to the Commission. "When you observe such offenders, report them to the Commission and provide their BVN along, because after now, the liability will be on you and I'm sure you don't want that to happen," he said.


The Zonal Commander further asked for a better working relationship that will ensure quick response by banks to letters from the Commission.

Group Seeks EFCC’s Help in Preventing Mobile Banking Fraud

Group Seeks EFCC’s Help in Preventing Mobile Banking Fraud






The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has been called upon to assist in checking fraudulent practices by some stakeholders in the mobile banking sector in the country.

The call was made when the Association of Mobile Money and Bank Agents in Nigeria (AMMBAN) paid a courtesy visit to the Kaduna State Command of the Commission as part of activities to herald the Association’s Annual Conference 2021.

Deputy Commander of the EFCC Kaduna Command, Suleiman Na’aba while commending the association, said that mobile money operators and other stakeholders needed to come together to scrutinize some of the existing laws guiding their operations because most of the members often claim ignorance, thereby falling victims to fraudsters.






Speaking on behalf of the association, Ahmed Bello said partnering with the EFCC at this point is key as the sector is seriously facing rampant issues of sharp practices.

He stressed the need to overhaul the laws as provided by the regulating bodies in tandem with modern and acceptable standards.

The association urged the Commission to organize a sensitization programme for them.

EFCC Hosts Bank Auditors, Urges Transparency in Banking Sector

EFCC Hosts Bank Auditors, Urges Transparency in Banking Sector


The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa today, August 24, 2021 affirmed the Commission’s willingness to partner with the Association of Chief Audit Executives of Banks in Nigeria, ACAEBIN, in tackling financial crimes and related challenges in the banking sector. “EFCC welcomes your suggestion of robust partnership. We cannot do this job alone. We need information, and for all Nigerians to be on board, to rid our country of corruption.”

He spoke when members of the ACAEBIN, led by the Chairman, Yinka Tiamiyu paid him a courtesy visit at the Commission`s headquarters, Abuja.


Bawa implored the bank auditors to take issues of transparency in banking operations seriously, adding that starting from September 1, 2021 it will no longer be business as usual as the Commission will hold banks liable where there are established cases of institutional complicity in fraud in the sector.

“I will like to urge you to know your customers, know the kind of businesses they do before opening an account for them because some customers will open an account within a space of two months a huge sum of money is found in the account, so there is need for you to try and query these information including their linked accounts,” Bawa said.


Tiamiyu in his remarks, said they were in the Commission to seek improved partnership between banks and the EFCC in tacking economic and financial crimes. He reiterated the commitment of banks as lead actors in the nation’s financial system to sanitizing the system, noting that it was not in the interest of the organizations to incubate or suppress financial malfeasance.


Amplifying this point, Uduak Udoh, Vice Chairman of the Association said, “Some customers are conniving with bank staff to loot funds. We want you to look into that area, not only the banks as we are ready to give you all the cooperation you need; we want you to trust bank auditors with information sharing because we cannot support fraudulent staff as they are a threat to the organization.”

They used the opportunity of the visit to highlight issues of concern to them and their organizations, including fast-tracking the consideration of petitions from banks by the EFCC.

Bawa Engages Bank Chiefs, Warns against Fraudulent Election Financing, Forex Malpractices

Bawa Engages Bank Chiefs, Warns against Fraudulent Election Financing, Forex Malpractices


The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, has sought greater collaboration with financial institutions in the country as a way of tackling fraudulent election financing, foreign exchange malpractices and money laundering.

Speaking on Thursday, August 19, 2021 during an interactive session with managing directors of banks in Nigeria at the Conference Hall of the Lagos Zonal Command of the EFCC, he said it was important to bring the financial institutions in the country up to speed with the evolving policies in the Commission, in line with the United Nations’ categorization of the fight against corruption vis-à-vis prevention, enforcement and assets recovery.


According to him, “At the EFCC, we want to place more emphasis on prevention.

“We want to lay less emphasis on enforcement, which is investigation and prosecution and put our energy more on prevention and asset recovery.

“In addition, some of the issues we have identified include foreign exchange malpractices and fraudulent election financing.

“As you all know, in 16 to 18 months, Nigeria will be preparing for another round of elections, and the government will not want what happened in the past to repeat itself”.

The EFCC boss said it had become necessary to put bankers on their toes, particularly as the 2023 general elections approached.

Bawa

Bawa, who also stressed that the "new EFCC" under his leadership believes that the financial institutions have an important role to play in the Commission’s efforts to rid Nigeria of economic and financial crimes, also used the occasion to charge the bankers to comply with the guidelines of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, on the issuance of Personal Travel Allowance, PTA and Business Travel Allowance, BTA, to their customers.

"You need to ensure full compliance with regard to knowing your customers and ensuring that you do not give opportunities for foreign exchange malpractices”.

Bawa, who disagreed with the allegation of a cat-and-mouse relationship between the Commission and financial institutions in the country, further stated that "Moving forward, come September 1, anything that we see that is happening or has happened within your industry, we are going to deal with it by the books.

“The Commission will ensure that any banker complicit in any such financial fraud will face the full wrath of the law.

“It is better to have fewer banks complying with the laws of the land than to have multiple banks not complying with the laws.”


In his remarks, Kennedy Uzoka, Group Chief Executive Officer of United Bank for Africa, UBA, described the engagement as "a very unique gathering”, adding that “the new leadership of the EFCC is seeing things from a new prism.

"We see a very positive and engaging relationship ensuing between us and the EFCC; and this has been a warm and intelligent engagement with the EFCC.”

Also speaking, Ifie Sekibo, Managing Director of Heritage Bank, assured the EFCC of continuous support in its fight against corruption and also called for a regular engagement with bankers.

Ebenezer Onyeagwu, Managing Director, Zenith Bank Plc, also pledged support for the EFCC war against corruption, noting that "it is a collaborative effort."

Why EFCC Re-arraigned Odukoya, First Nation Airways, Bellview over 2.1bn Fraud?

Why EFCC Re-arraigned Odukoya, First Nation Airways, Bellview over 2.1bn Fraud?


 The Nigeria's anti graft agency Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Monday re-arraigned the Chief Executive Officer of First Nation Airways Limited, Kayode Odukoya, for an alleged N2.1bn fraud.

The reason for Odukoya’s re-arraignment before Justice Mojisola Dada of the Lagos State Special Offences Court in Ikeja followed an amendment to the charges against him, First Nation Airways Limited, and Bellview Airlines Limited.

The amended seven counts against the three defendants border on forgery of a Memorandum of Loss of Lagos State Certificate of Occupancy, uttering of forged documents, perjury, and dishonest conversion of N2.1bn belonging to Polaris Bank (formerly Skye Bank).

The defendants were first arraigned in March 2018 on four counts, in which the EFCC stated that they fraudulently converted N1.7bn belonging to the bank.

In the amended charge sheet, the EFCC increased the money from N1.7bn to N2.1bn.

When the amended counts were read to them on Monday, the defendants pleaded not guilty as before.

Justice Dada ruled that Odukoya would continue to enjoy the N10m bail granted him in 2018, following a prayer to that effect by the defence counsel, Edoka Onyeke.

The prosecution counsel for the EFCC, Nnaemeka Omenwa, told the court that he would be closing his case for the defence to open theirs.

But the defence counsel made an application for the recall of the second prosecution witness, a Polaris Bank official, as well as the investigating officer from the EFCC in view of the amendments to the charges.

After granting the application, Justice Dada adjourned the case till February 15 to 18, 2021.

🎯Do you know that we spend *14 Billion* Naira every day just recharging our phones
🎯Do you also know that you and I, spend *446 Billion* Naira recharging our phones in a month
-🎯Can you imagine that, the inflow investment in our Telecoms industry in a year is *21.4 Trillion* Naira.
🔥And we say there is no money in this country.
🔥NCC says Nigerians spend more money on *TELECOMS* then on *HEALTH* and *Food*


🔥-The Big Question we should be asking ourselves is ....
*How much of this money comes back to you?*

This VTU business is the same Telecom business that all the Nigerian banks are doing now.

Iran changes the name of the national currency “rial” to “fog”

Iran changes the name of the national currency “rial” to “fog”

Iran changes the name of the national currency to “fog”, because in real life no one used the word “rial”. This was announced on Wednesday by President Hassan Rouhani.

“For a long time, we had a national currency that we recorded and a national currency that was used in spoken language. The rial did not actually exist in people's lives,” he said. 

The president’s speech was broadcast by Iran’s state television. 

He added that "a significant part of the errors in the banks was related to the confusion between the rial and the fog, as ordinary people and bank employees were mistaken."

According to Rouhani, "the way people speak and how it will be recorded will henceforth be the same." "I do not think that from the point of view of economic growth or inflation this measure will have a noticeable effect, rather it is about the convenience of calculations and the beauty of the national currency," he said.

The Majlis (parliament) of Iran approved on Monday a bill to rename and denominate the national currency, according to which the Iranian rial is replaced by fog. During the exchange, 10 thousand rials will correspond to one fog. Thus, as a result of the denomination, the face value of the currency will be reduced by four orders of magnitude.


The fog was in circulation in Persia (the former name of Iran) until 1932, when it was replaced by rial. Now the reverse replacement is made in order to simplify cash settlements. Until now, fog was considered an unofficial monetary unit and equated to 10 rials. The rial is featured on Central Bank notes and on price tags in stores, but in everyday speech, Iranians almost always translate prices into fogs, which introduces a certain confusion.
