This latest news is coming as a shock as Polaris Bank is going to be put up for sale after the 2019 elections months after it was taken over from Skye Bank.

This was disclosed by the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) spokesman, Jude Nwauzor, on Tuesday.

Speaking on plans for the sale of the bank, Nwauzor said:

“The election season has slowed down things. We would advertise for expressions of interest from investors after elections and commence the sale process”.

Emefiele had said: “As a responsible and responsive regulator and in consultation with the Nigerian Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC), we have decided to establish a bridge bank, Polaris Bank, to assume the assets and liabilities of Skye Bank.
