According to a Press Statement made available to Citizen NewsNG by Unity Bank of Nigeria, all available records of Association of Senior Civil Servant of Nigeria [ASCSN] Bank Account and Transactions reveals that there is completely no wrong doing on the part of the financial institution.
Unity Bank stated further that it acted professionally in the interest of the Association.
“Till date, the Bank has thus carried out all financial transactions in line with the mandate, instructions and authority of the customer (ie the Association of Senior Civil Servant of Nigeria)”, the statement clarified.
“Until proven otherwise, the Bank can therefore not be held liable for any complaints of ASCSN since the instructions for the transfer of the sum of money totalling N54.8m were duly authorised by the association”, it continued.
Citizen NewsNG gathered further that during the transactions, the Bank sent short message service [sms] notifications and issued periodic account statements of the financial activities on the account.
Unity Bank however advise members of Association to exercise patience for the outcome of the reconciliation to determine if the mandate upon which the Bank acted fails to tally with the authorised signatories submitted by the association.
“The Central Bank of Nigeria is aware of the issues and we held meeting with them last Friday but the people picketing the Bank are merely embarking on a needless smear campaign instead awaiting outcome of the reconciliation process”, the Press Statement concluded.
