Sallah Festival: NLC wants Banks to improve ATM services



Bank customers in Lagos commend services of ATMs during holidays

The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Kano State Chapter, has called on Banks operating ATM Machines across the state to improve their services by providing adequate funds.

This is contained in a statement by the NLC chairman in the state, Mr Kabiru Minjibir and made available to newsmen on Wednesday in Kano.

He said there was need for them to improve their services in view of the high demand for cash arising from the forthcoming Sallah celebration

He said, “Banks are hereby strongly advised to note that the Congress would not fold its arms and watch workers being helplessly frustrated unnecessarily due to the inability of the banks to discharge their responsibilities”.

Minjibir noted that such can deny the workers to enjoy their hard earned and legitimate income paid by the government or their employees.

“For the avoidance of doubt, we can no longer tolerate any deliberate action or inaction by any bank that cause hardship to workers and pensioners in the process of collecting their income”, he said.

“We would also like to use this opportunity to reiterate our call on all those in charge of our affairs at whatever level of authority to reflect on the current hardship experienced by the populace”.he said.

He called on the workers to remain committed and punctual in service and prayers for return of the nation’s lost economy’s glory.

He assured workers, pensioners and all labour stakeholders that the Congress would remain committed in its duties and responsibilities as advocate of social justice and frontline actors in struggle for the emancipation of the working class.

The NLC chairman expressed his felicitation to the state government, Emirate Council, State Assembly, workers, pensioners and the entire people of the state on the forthcoming Eid-el-Kabir festival.
