Banditry: UBA cuts Abuja opening hours over safety
Written by Broad Admin on September 2, 2022
The United Bank for Africa, UBA, has reduced its hours of hours in some of its branches in Abuja and its environs amid a heightening spate of armed banditry and terrorist attacks in the country’s capital.
Announcing the development in a memo to customers, the bank said it took the decision for the safety of its customers and employees, advising customers to channel further transactions to its digital channel.
“Please be informed that some of our branches will now close earlier for the safety of all our customers and employees. Our digital channels will remain available to you 24/7,” the notice of early closure issued by the bank read.
However, some customers have expressed concerns about the decision, saying it would further complicate their ability to do business. The bank’s failure to clearly state the hours that its branches would be running on weekdays also did not help apprehensive customers.
