Professor Hubert Rampasad, one of the worlds most respected corporate governance gurus, has said that the controversies trailing the publication of bankdebtors is not only embarrassing but confirm need for new corporate governance blueprint for financial institutions in Nigeria. The nature of the emerging controversies signal some deep seated corporate governance gaps.

Professor Hubert, who is in Nigeria to speak on “New blueprint for sustainable Good Corporate Governance for Financial Institutions” made the remark on Thursday, August 6 2015 at a reception in Lagos organized to welcome him to Nigeria for the Senior Executive Certificate Programme on Good Governance and Anti-Corruption Management Information System for Financial Institutions being organized by Babcock University Centre for Development and Ethics Resource Centre Nigeria. Professor Hubert is the Guest Lecturer at the Theworkshop scheduled to hold at Babcock University from 11th to 13th august, 2015.

Professor Hubert said he is surprised that many of the published debtors are claiming that they have no banking relationship whatsoever with the banks they are supposed to be owing. He is also surprised that some of the companies published as debtors are claiming that they were registered long after the period they were said they have taken the loan. Also surprising is the report that four banks hold 34% of industry’s toxic assets.
