By Modupe Gbadeyanka The management of SunTrust Bank has refuted claims that it owes some members of staff of the National Assembly. Earlier this week, some legislative aides staged a protest at the National Assembly complex in Abuja, claiming the lender has refused to pay them their salaries, leading to the death of one Mr Hassan Abiodun, an aide to the Deputy Speaker, Mr Yusuf Suleiman. But addressing newsmen yesterday over the matter, the bank, through its Executive Director in charge of Finance and Risk Management, Mr Usman Abdulqadir, said there was no truth in the claims. Speaking with journalists in Lagos at the bank\u2019s office, Mr Abdulqadir, on behalf of the lender\u2019s chief executive officer, Mr Muhammad Jibrin, noted that all that concerns payment of the workers had been done. \u201cWe have received the mandate to make payments to various beneficiaries and those payments have since been relayed, some via REMITA, to the relevant banks. \u201cWe advise that any persons who are yet to receive payments executed by us should first check with his\/her bankers to trace where such payments are held. \u201cWe categorically restate that we do not fail to honour any obligation to our clients,\u201d Mr Abdulqadir said. SunTrust Bank, launched in 2016, handles accounts of some National Assembly employees.
