“As liquidator, what we do immediately there is (a) revocation of licence is to pay the maximum insured amount. the corporation “proceeded to recover the loans and advances” granted by the liquidated institutions before revocation and “also realise the assets” left behind “so that we can pay it to the depositors.

“We only pay the maximum insured amount at the point of liquidation then, subsequently, begin to pay depositors and after that, we wind up, but the payment is currently ongoing.”
