Bank workers and customers in Lagos ignored the call by a faction of NLC that workers should go on strike on Wednesday as banking activities remained normal.

A correspondent of News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) who visited some banks in Lagos reported that they all opened for business.

Normal activities were also reported in banks in Ojuelegba, Mushin and on Ikorodu Road.

Some of the workers told NAN that they resumed as usual as early as 7.00 am.

They said that some customers, who were not sure of the situation, arrived before the opening time of 8.00 am.

A staff in one of the banks said his bank had kept on assuring customers that the bank would open to customers.

“You can see by yourself that activities in our branch are normal, we are law abiding organisation”.

At another bank, a customer said that she was surprised that various banks opened.

“First, I was in doubt if banks would open because of the speculation that a faction of the NLC would stage a protest today.

"But believe me, activities are normal, but just that security is tight probably because of the fact that miscreants may want to take advantage of the situation.

Another customer said he was happy that banks opened as he was scared of keeping money in his shop.
