The Federal Government of Nigeria on Wednesday ordered banks in Lagos, Ogun and Abuja to begin operations from Monday 4th of May, 2020.
The National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Dr Sani Aliyu, however gave conditions and preventive measures to stem the spread of covid-19 while the banks are open for operations.
Dr Sani Aliyu disclosed that banks would be allowed to open between 8am and 2pm in Lagos, Ogun and Abuja.
“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.”
