Banks to open in Abuja, Lagos, Ogun from Monday – FG

Commercial banks operations are set to resume in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun States beginning Monday, May 4, says Federal Government, according to reports.

PUNCH quoted the National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu, to have said during a briefing in Abuja on Wednesday.

Aliyu said banks would be allowed to open between 8am and 2pm in the three places.

He said, “In terms of the banks, this continues to be a recurring issue for all of us. We have been in touch with the CBN governor.

“Moving on from Monday, banks will open and they will operate normal services from 8am to 2pm. That is six hours but there will be the usual restrictions. For instance, self-distancing and the use of temperature monitors, hand hygiene, and making sure the capacities of banking halls are restricted so that people do not come together.”

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari during his address to the nation on Monday night, announced the “gradual easing” of the more than four-week lockdown in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun as part of measures to curb the spread of the pandemic.
