Lagos - Efforts by non-banking institutions to buy 100 per cent of Enterprise Bank Limited which has been put up for sale has been dashed as the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) is said to be favourably disposed to selling the nationalised lender to a conventional bank.
The corporation, through its financial advisers in the sale of the bank, has only shortlisted seven banks out of the 18 investment groups that signified to take over the bank, reports New Telegraph.

The list is expected to be pruned to three- the preferred bidder and two reserve bidders.
