Following the exposure of 105 delinquent debtors, the Asset Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON) is preparing to release another list of debtors. AMCON’s Head of Corporate Communications Department, Jude Nwauzo made this known.
According to emerging information, AMCON has decided to expose the debtors following their failure to meet their debt obligations after several peaceful engagements.

Nairametrics had reported AMCON’s published names of its top 105 delinquent debtors. According to AMCON, all avenues provided by the corporation for the debtors to propose acceptable resolution terms failed.

It was created to be a key stabilising and revitalising tool aimed at reviving the financial system by efficiently resolving the non-performing loan assets of banks in the country. AMCON is also billed to wound down by 2020, according to the Act establishing it.
