Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) has resumed normal banking hours following the suspension of the oil marketers’ strike which led to a severe fuel scarcity in the country.

GTB announced the resumption of its usual schedule via a statement released to customers on Monday.

It reads in part:

“We are pleased to inform you that from tomorrow, Tuesday, 26th of May 2015, all our branches nationwide will resume normal banking hours of 8am – 5pm for all your banking services, as the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) have announced the suspension of the petroleum product strike.”

“Thank you for bearing with us during the 1 day early closure period, and we sincerely apologise for every inconvenience this might have caused you.”

The bank and several others had announced the early closure measure in a bid to cope with the lack of fuel in the country.

Other banks who closed early include First City Monument Bank (FCMB), WEMA bank and First bank.
