Access Bank has threatened to publish the names of its debtors in the Newspapers in two weeks time.
The statement was released by the bank on Thursday.
The bank said it is acting in line with directives received from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
The bank said it will join with other banks to make sure that persistent debtors are banned from participating in the Nigerian Foreign Exchange Securities Markets.
“All Access Bank Plc (including former Diamond Bank Plc) debtors are directed to pay up their past due obligations in order to avoid punitive actions being taken against them,”
“Please note that we shall publish our debtors’ names in newspapers in two weeks.”
“Similarly, in the event that these obligations are not fulfilled, we shall take such further actions against such delinquent individuals and companies as we may consider necessary and shall relentlessly pursue full recovery of all our debts.”
