According to Charles Aigbe, Head of Communication, UBA in a public statement, “UBA is aware of the on-going and spurious media speculation linking our institution to recent events in Turkey. In light of this we believe it is necessary to categorically state that UBA has no involvement in or connection to these accusations, which are clearly false.”
The media report has it that the funds used to prosecute the July 15 coup attempt was channeled through UBA in Nigeria, using CIA links.
He maintains the Bank resolve to delivering on its strategy to build Africa economy. “We remain focused and firmly committed to delivering on our strategy to build Africa’s premier banking institution,” he said
