Senate Committee, AMCON Meet On N54trn Recovery


The Senate Committee
on Banking, Insurance and other Finance Institutions and top officials of Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) met to plan a way forward for the recovery of N5.4 trillion debt.
The committee expressed dissatisfaction over the non-recovery of the huge debt owed AMCON by some firms and individuals.
A source from the senate who spoke under anonymity said the recovery of the debt was necessary especially now that the country is passing through difficult economic times.
A member of the committee said AMCON was mandated to take stringent steps to recover the huge amount of money owed by those firms.
In an interview by the Managing Director of AMCON, Mr Ahmed Kuru with newsmen, he said the committee members are prepared to ensure that the money is recovered.
Kuru noted that AMCON has faced untold challenges in its moves to recover the fund, adding that the committee was disturbed about the issue.
He said that the debtors have refused to repay the debt despite the attempts made by the AMCON leadership.
The AMCON boss stated the preparedness of the committee to do everything under the law to ensure that the N5.4 trillion is recovered from the companies and individuals who have benefitted from the borrowed money.
