We didn’t give Tinubu N500m new notes  – GTBank

CITIZENS COMPASS- THE management of Guaranty Trust Bank has dismissed a report that it gave Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) N500m in naira new notes on the eve of the presidential and national assembly election.

The bank urged its customers to disregard the unsubstantiated claim in its entirety.

A Twitter user, @ifygold21 had earlier posted that the bank gave the sum on February 24, 2022, on the order of the President, Major General Muhammadu Muhammadu Buhari (retd).

However, the bank in a statement posted on its social media on Tuesday refuted the report, describing the sponsors of the post as uninformed and malicious.

“The attention of Guaranty Trust Bank Ltd (the “Bank”) has been drawn to a spurious post on Twitter by @ ifygold21 alleging that the Bank gave the new Naira notes in the total sum of ₦500 million to one of the leading presidential candidates in the ongoing General Elections on the eve of the elections and at the order of a high-ranking Government official.

“The Bank wishes to refute this claim in its entirety and state categorically that it is completely false and is designed to bring the image of the Bank and its officers to disrepute. The fact that the post refers to Segun Agbaje as Managing Director of the Bank further exposes the sponsors of the content as uninformed and malicious. Accordingly, we would like to clarify that Miriam Olusanya is the Managing Director of the Bank and has been at the helm of affairs of the Bank in that capacity since her appointment in August 2021.”
