The Association of Corporate Affairs Managers of Banks, the umbrella body of Corporate and Marketing Communications Professionals working in Nigeria’s ban king sector, has debunked the message purporting that the Central Bank of Nigeria is shutting down banking services for five days for Saturday’s presidential polls.
Specifically, the reports claimed that banks would shut down between February 23rd and 27th.
In a statement issued by the ACAMB on Wednesday, and signed by President, ACAMB, Rasheed Bolarinwa, the body described the report as fake news.
ACAMB assured customers that banks had put adequate measures in place to ensure depositors continue to access money in their accounts during this period.
It added, “Customers who wish to carry out transfers or use electronic banking services will have unhindered access to these services before, during, and after the elections.”
