The CBN spokesman further stated that no Nigerian Bank is in distress and that “the CBN, as the industry regulator, has a duty to depositors, in particular, and the economy, in general, to ensure the soundness of all financial institutions.”

The CBN also stated that it will remain alive to its responsibility of ensuring banking system stability and soundness through constant monitoring and supervision of all licensed institutions.

  2. Heritage bank is distress. It's confirmed and I don't know why CBN is lying. I guess it's because Saraki is a Co owner. Heritage bank will go down just like they did with SGBN and Trade bank. How do you explain paying 200k to a customer that wants to withdraw 2m.
