Skye Bank Is Dead! Polaris Bank Takes Over After Skye Bank Licence Revocation By CBN - See Reason

A prestigious financial institution in Nigeria, Skye Bank's Licence has recently been revoked by the Nigeria Apex bank, 'Central Bank of Nigeria' and renames the revoked bank (Skye bank) to Polaris Bank Limited.

The banking revocation was announced by Mr. Godwin Emefiele who is the CBN Governor and MD of Nigeria Insurance Deposit Corporation (NDIC) in Lagos state at a media briefing.

The taken over was automatically confirmed after the official twitter username of Skye Bank was changed to Polaris Bank Limited.

But Why was Skye Bank's Licence Revoked And Taken Over By Polaris Bank limited?

This is the question that flood the social media after the sudden disclosure and I also believed their a reason for that.

According to the CBN Governor, Skye Bank Licence is revoked due to inability of the bank owner to shore up the capital of N350 billion intervention received by the revoked bank in July 2016.

Emefiele added that Skye Bank need urgent recapitalization because they can no longer operate as a financial institution in Nigeria on 'borrowed times' with indefinite liquidity support from Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.

So in clear statement, Polaris Bank Limited takes over Skype Bank due to insufficient funds to cater for their assets and liabilities and CBN can no longer lend out funds to them.

To avoid any inconveniences or burden, it's better the Skye Bank's license is revoked... Don't you think so?

And what will happen to previous Skye Bank's customers after Licence revocation?

I told you earlier that the news flood quickly on social media right? But what people asks the most is not just 'why is Skye bank licence revoked' but what will happen to the customers' money saved in their respective account numbers?

Well, Emefiele cleared the doubt after he said that all Skye bank assets and liabilities will now be managed by Polaris Bank limited. That's your money will be intact, no single 'kobo' will missed or deducted.

Central Bank of Nigeria had also injected the sum of N786 billion with the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) in order to comment sales processes in the new bank, Polaris Bank Limited starting from Monday, 23rd of September, 2018.

Is Skype Bank's License Revocation And Renaming to Polaris Bank Limited Helpful or Not?

The only reason revealed by CBN is that, they can no longer inject or lend funds to Skye Bank anymore because the owner and the entire bank management is unable to returned the money lend to them since July 2016.

To save you (as 'customer') and CBN funds not to be wasted into non-profitable bank again, I think you guys should be happy because CBN made the right choice.

The Licence revocation didn't affect anybody (I don't know about the bosses) but the staffs of previous Skye Bank will still remain as Polaris Bank's staffs.

After Skye Bank's license revocation, their share price increased by 4.05 percent at 77  kobo which shows good start for Polaris Bank limited.

'Polaris Bank' is not really a new bank but Skye Bank reformation bank by Central Bank of Nigeria and we can say it's owned by CBN. So tell me how they will fall into dept again?

The bridge bank, Polaris will start sourcing for investors to buy out AMCON after full operation on monday.
