The state government also expressed its optimism that the bank is safe and in good financial health.
In a circular by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Finance/Accountant-General, Mrs. A. S Umar and addressed to the states Ministries, Departments and Agencies and local governments, she noted that Lagos State is a major stakeholder in Skye Bank.
She further advised public servants to desist from panic withdrawals, saying that negative rumours making the rounds against the bank were unfounded.
The state, with a population estimated above 20 million and a four-million middle class, has been described by the local and international agencies as Africa’s fifth largest economy in Gross Domestic Product at about $131 billion.
However, the new business partnership between Skye Bank and the state is expected to boost the bank’s capacity again in retail and commercial segment.
