The owner of NICON Insurance and Nigeria Reinsurance, Jimoh Ibrahim, has described his debt servicing ratio as the lowest among strong business moguls in the country.
According to the NICON insurance boss, my current debt servicing ratio is put at 9 percent, while that of Dangote is at 13 percent.
In a statement made available to newsmen yesterday, the First Doctoral Candidate of the University of Cambridge Business Management Science explained that the debt servicing ratio of Nigeria stands at 98 percent, while USA and UK’s stand at 105 percent and 85 percent respectively.
He, therefore, challenged Asset Management Corporation Of Nigeria (AMCON) to name who’s a businessman with a first-class score.
According to the 54-year-old business mogul, the Google rating of his net asset is over one billion dollars, adding that the data showed excellent asset specificity.
He said: “I collateralised a loan of N26 billion with £130.7 million (at 5% interest rate now £245m or N178 billion). So, if you buy my loan, where is my cash collateral is the question.”
Ibrahim, who described AMCON as a lawless organisation which the World Bank and IMF had condemned, said: “AMCON should not drag Federal Government’s economic policy into self-interest and I am sure that President Buhari will not support economic injustice because ‘an unjust order is an invitation to Anarchy.’
