An attempt to link United Bank for Africa (UBA) as one of the financiers to the failed coup attempt in Turkey has been completely rebuffed by the bank.
Since the outcome of the attempt to forcefully change democratically elected government in Turkey, there is has been some unconfirmed media report that UBA had been fingered as one of the backers of the juntas.
However, the bank has categorically deflated such rumour and denied its involvement in any way.
According to Charles Aigbe, Head of Communication, UBA in a public statement made available to 789marketing, he said “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.”
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
