AFAN dissociates self from farmers loan application notice

Spread the love

The All Farmers Association of Nigeria (AFAN), on Tuesday dissociated itself from a notice asking its members to apply for loans and to make certain payments into a commercial bank account.

AFAN, in a statement by its president, Dr Farouk Rabiu-Mudi, said it had nothing to do with the notice and had no such plan at the moment.

“It has come to our notice that some individuals are sending information purported to be from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and food security to all our members.

“They are asking them to register and apply for loan, requesting them to pay an amount into a WEMA Bank account with support from AFAN.

“We hereby bring to the knowledge and notice of the general public and AFAN members that the association is not aware of any development regarding the issuance of loans to any group or members of any association.

“AFAN, therefore, advises the general public and the members of AFAN to ignore the notice because AFAN does not have a Wema Bank account in the first place,” Rabiu-Mudi, said.

The AFAN president described the notice as a fake one designed by frauds to rob innocent and unsuspecting members of the public of their hard-earned money.

According to him, the fake notice was crafted with the aim of dragging the good name of the association in the mud and to cause disaffection within the group.

“This is fraudulent because our website account has been hacked. So the general public is hereby warned that fraudsters are on the prowl using information about us to defraud them,” the AFAN president said. (NAN) (www.nannews.ng)
