The Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) has dissociated itself from some online stories on pending debt-related issue between one Mr. Olajide Awosedo, the Chairman of Grant Properties Limited and the Corporation.
A statement signed by its spokesman, Jude Nwauzor, said the writers of the stories on the online media, also claimed that they have reactions from AMCON, denying that AMCON did not provide reactions to any story in that regards as it will not join issues with such perpetrators.
“We also observed a purported “AMCON response” in some sections of the online media, which is being presented to the public as AMCON’s reaction to the falsehood. The general public is hereby informed that these stories are barefaced falsehood and the Corporation wants to put on record that it did not issue a press statement or a rejoinder in reaction to the said inaccurate stories.
“Pursuant to our mandate, AMCON would not join issues with obligors on the pages of newspapers and as a law abiding recovery agency of the Federal Government of Nigeria, we are guided within the confines of the law and would continue to act accordingly. The public should please disregard this falsehood”, he said.
