The management of First City Monument Bank has announced the temporary closure of some of its branches in 16 states of the Federation over the deadly coronavirus.
This was made known in e-mails sent to customers on Thursday, informing them of the development and the need to maintain social distancing in order to curtail the spread of the virus.
“Your health and well-being matter to us.
“In view of the increased spread of coronavirus and the need to encourage social distancing, we are modifying our operations in a few ways to ensure we can serve you better:
“Suspension of Saturday Banking – we will no longer offer Saturday Banking at any of our branches until further notice.
“Temporary closure of a few branches – in locations where we have multiple branches in close proximity, we will be temporarily closing a few of them.
“These changes take immediate effect.
“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.
“As usual, our self-service channels are available 24/7 for your convenience,” the email read.
