First Allied Savings & LoansManagement of First Allied Savings & Loans has assured customers their funds are safe

The management of First Allied Savings & Loans (FASL) is asking customers to disregard claims that government is taking over the institution.

In a statement to allay fears, the company said customers have mistaken the entity to be ‘FSL’, a savings and loans company government is allegedly making efforts to take over.

“‘FASL’ has become a victim of mistaken identity which has sparked a run on our business by customers who could not distinguish between the two entities. This is causing panic among some of our customers” it said, while urging customers to “verify the institution’s ownership records from our regulator, the Bank of Ghana or the Registrar General’s Department” if in doubt.

Below is the full statement:

PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT

From the Management of First Allied Savings & Loans

Following the circulation of unfounded rumours that one ‘Nyantakyi’ is associated with ‘FSL’ (a savings and loans company the government is allegedly stepping in to take over), ‘FASL’ has become a victim of mistaken identity which has sparked a run on our business by customers who could not distinguish between the two entities. This is causing panic among some of our customers.

The Management of First Allied wishes to state that the stories are false and should be disregarded. Anybody in doubt can verify the institution’s ownership records from our regulator, the Bank of Ghana or the Registrar General’s Department.

All customers are to note that all our branches are open and we continue to serve you.

We appreciate the anxiety of customers flowing from such rumors and we appeal to them to be patient with us as we attend to them. We wish to further reassure them that their funds are safe and secured. We are working assiduously to rectify any challenge caused by these developments in the past few weeks.

Thank you.
