FG To Borrow Dormant Account Balances, Unclaimed Dividends by GIANTPLUSHUB: 9:07pm On Jan 06
Unclaimed dividends and bank account balances unattended to for at least six years will be available as special credit to the federal government through the Unclaimed Funds Trust Fund.

According to the Finance Act 2020 recently signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari, the trust fund will be a sub-fund of the Crisis Intervention Fund.

“Any unclaimed dividend of a public limited liability company quoted on the Nigerian Stock Exchange and any unutilised amounts in a dormant bank account maintained in or by a deposit money bank which has remained unclaimed or unutilised for a period of not less than six years from the date of declaring the dividend or domiciling the funds in a bank account shall be transferred immediately to the trust fund,” the act read.

The act exempts official bank accounts owned by the federal government, state government or local governments or any of their ministries, departments or agencies.

According to the act, the monies transferred to the trust fund will be a “special debt owed by the federal government to shareholders and dormant bank account holders”.

It also states that the original owners of the money can claim it at any time.

The operation of the trust fund will be supervised by the Debt Management Office (DMO) and governed by a governing council chaired by the finance minister and a co-chairperson from the private sector appointed by the president.

Other members of the governing council shall include the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), director-general of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), managing director of the National Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC), a representative of the registrars of companies, two representatives of the shareholders’ association, a representative of the Bankers’ Committee and the director-general of the Debt Management Office as the secretary of the trust fund.

This move will make needed funds available to the federal government without foreign exchange worries or conditions attached to loans from multilateral lenders.

According to the Debt Management Office, Nigeria owed $31.98 billion to multilateral lenders like the World Bank Group, International Monetary Fund (IMF) and African Development Bank (AfDB) Group as of September 2020.

Does this sounds like Nigerians banks accounts are in trouble or all is well with Nigeria? Can we really trust the government that the borrowed funds will be available at anytime?

He is saying this to justify using ND oil earning of the future as collateral to loans funding projects in his backyard.
The criminals and thieves you supported for 16 wasted years of looting and corruption borrowed money to pay Salaries and LOOT the rest, even when we made the highest profit in oil revenue in the historyof Nigeria,

And our darling Daddy is borrowing money to build infrastructures that have never been seen in the history of this nation.
Only the willfully blind will not see all the infrastructures being built all over the country.

And you told us not to love, Support and pray for this man, but we should rather support the thieves, looters and criminals y'all support?

We have got to a stage when PMB achievements can no longer be denied but hated.

Shame on the enemies of Nigeria,
Shame on the supporters of looters.

MAY BUHARI SUCCEED.

Buhari is the worst thing that has ever happened to this country.

All he does is borrow, borrow and borrow.

From China to the small N5k left in dormant accounts.

How did we get here?

I am still surprised, how they repackaged and sold Buhari to Nigerians in 2015.

When we say Nigeria is finished, we truly mean it. Average Nigerians might not really understand but the next few years will be tough if Buhari is still in that Aso rock. I pray those BMC are also watching the situation. Buhari and his cohorts have run this country aground. I wonder how this MANNABBQGRILLS is sleeping knowing fully well he is just deceiving himself.

This is the lowest of low for ds govt.

So so so shameful.

They are owing almost all d countries in d world.. even Brazil. Yet, nothing to show for it.

They keep taking billions from world bank...still no result.

They started squeezing Nigerians thru VAT, fuel hike, electricity hike and every oda thing they can think of...yet, no show.

Now this.

This govt is cursed, the worst in d history of mankind.

The nomad in aso rock has ruined this excuse of a country.

Since they let illiterates take over all the important positions in the country... people who know next to nothing about economics...the worst is yet to come.

Nd 2023 is still far.

Very soon, we will all need to be doing daily contribution to this failed govt.
