Banks in the country had to close operations by 1am on Monday due to the current shortage of fuel. But the banks are gradually returning to normal banking hours. This is definitely not unconnected to the promise made by oil marketers to call off the strike that led to the fuel crisis.
Access bank this morning sent a message to their customers:
