Stanbic IBTC Bank has announced the commencement of Saturday banking in key cities across the country.
The new service window, which will further expand financial inclusion
in the country, is available at major shopping malls and markets where
the bank has branches across the federation.
A statement from the bank yesterday quoted the Chief Executive
Officer, Mr. Yinka Sanni, as saying that as Nigeria’s huge unbanked
population steadily migrates to the formal banking system, the bank is
well positioned to help everyone actualize their aspirations via the
availability of branches and service points.
According to him, as Nigerian financial services industry is rapidly
evolving, it is imperative that the changing needs and goals of both
existing and potential customers are constantly monitored to enable the
provision of appropriate products and solutions.
“At Stanbic IBTC Bank, we are resolute about taking advantage of the
growth opportunities in Nigeria. There can be no better substitute for
proper on-the-ground presence in the country.
“Standard Bank Group, to which we belong, has been investing steadily
in its African footprint for over two decades. Nigeria remains a key
market for the group given our confidence in its massive growth
potential,” Sanni said.
He explained that the bank will continue to avail Nigerians ease of
access to its products and services. Sanni said, “By making these
products and services available on a non-traditional workday, we believe
that many more people and businesses will derive significant benefits
from this window.”
