AMCON Reacts To Nwankwo Kanu’s Claims On Hardley Apartments Hotel


Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) has urged the public to disregard the unfounded stories and comments in respect of the huge debt of the Yardley Apartment promoter, Mr. Nwankwo Kanu, erstwhile Super Eagles sKipper.
In a statement issued by the head, Corporate Communications of AMCON, Mr. Jude Nwauzor, the corporation emphasised that it was in the prices of resolving the issue through legal procedure and would not trade words over a matter that is before the court, pointing out that AMCON is at all times guided within the confines of the law.

Below is the full statement:

The attention of Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) has been drawn to some inaccurate stories that are sponsored on some online publications regarding the huge debt of the promoter of The Hardley Apartments, Mr. Nwankwo Kanu, former captain of the Nigeria Super Eagles of Nigeria.

AMCON is not in the habit of joining issues with obligors on the pages of the newspapers especially when the matter is in court as in this one. However, as a law abiding recovery agency of the Federal Government of Nigeria, we are at all times guided within the confines of the law and would continue to act accordingly.

The general public is hereby informed that these stories are brazen falsehood meant to mislead the public on the true position of the Nwankwo Kanu’s massive indebtedness to the Corporation. We also want to put on record that having exhausted all avenues of peaceful resolution as a result of the huge debt, AMCON in 2015 obtained an order from the Federal High Court, which gave the Corporation permission to take possession of The Hardley Apartments located at No. 46 Waziri Ibrahim Crescent, Off Elsie Femi – Pearse Crescent, Off Adeola Odeku Street, Victoria Island in Lagos State. This order still subsists, pending the determination of the substantive matter

The public should therefore please disregard these misrepresentations as we await the pronouncement of the court on the matter.

Jude Nwauzor

Head, Corporate Communications, AMCON
