Barely 24 hours after Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) announced that it would close its branches early due to the fuel scarcity, other banks have followed suit.
FCMB, First Bank, WEMA bank also close at 1pm
All the banks have informed their customers that they would be forced to close shop at 1pm until the petrol crisis ends.
The affected banks are the First City Monument Bank (FCMB) and First and WEMA banks.
All the banks have informed their customers that they would be forced to close shop at 1pm until the crisis ends.
“Dear Customer, our branches will close at 1pm from Mon May 25, due to the shortage of petroleum products. All our alternate channels will remain available,” FCMB said via a statement sent by text to its customers.
The petrol crisis has also led to the shutting down of radio station with telecommunications companies warning that their service might be affected as well.
Meanwhile, the scarcity is expected to end soon as oil marketers in the country have called off their strike and are to begin supplying petroleum products nationwide after reaching an agreement with the Federal Government.
