The CBN earlier said the dissolution of Titan Trust Bank, Union Bank, Keystone Bank, and Polaris Bank became necessary due to the non-compliance of these banks and their respective boards with the provisions of Section 12(c), (f), (g), (h) of Banks and Other Financial Institutions Act, 2020, adding that the banks got themselves involved in activities that pose a threat to financial stability.
The CBN, however, assured Nigerians that the funds of depositors in the affected banks are safe and unaffected by the decision.
