Banks To Operate Fully From Today – Nigerian Government

The Federal Government has said banks in the country could resume ‘normal working hours’, effective June 2, The Punch reports.

The National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Sani Aliyu, stated this during a briefing in Abuja on Monday.

He said, “Effective from Tuesday, June 2, the easing of the lockdown will be characterised by the following:

“There will be full opening of the financial sector with banks now allowed to operate normal working hours five days a week.”

He added that the PTF has reviewed the 8pm-6am curfew earlier announced by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) during his address on April 27.

Aliyu said the curfew would now be between 10pm and 4am daily.

He said, “The nationwide curfew will remain in place but the timing will be reduced to 10pm and 4am.

“Just to clarify, the purpose of the curfew is to limit social interaction and therefore reduce the spread of the virus.

“Persons that are on essential duty including but not limited to those involved in the provision of health services, media services and critical infrastructure are exempted.”

The national coordinator stressed that the goal of the review is to allow the full restoration of the Nigerian economy.
