In a significant update, the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) has released the names of 20 failed banks whose depositors, creditors, and shareholders are set to receive an additional N16.18 billion in liquidation dividends. This brings the total liquidation dividends to N61.63 billion, exceeding insured sums for depositors of these banks.

Contrary to recent reports suggesting the closure of new banks in Nigeria, the NDIC clarified that the 20 banks in question had previously shut down due to the revocation of their operating licenses by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) between 1994 and 2018.

Bashir Nuhu, the Director of Communications and Public Affairs at NDIC, debunked the rumors during a statement in Abuja on November 13, 2023.
