First bank

Customers knock First Bank’s inefficient ATM


Months after  Mr. Sheddy Ozone sounded the alarm bell on how First Bank Nigeria Plc’s ATM debited him without dispersing the money and his repeated attempt to get the bank to reverse the amount in question to no avail, another user of the machine, is said to have fallen into the same trap.
Like Ozone,  a former aide to former Governor of Delta State, Chief James Ibori, the fellow in question this time round, has also made several report to the bank to get the traped money refunded.

According to the experience with the oldest bank in Nigeria posted by Mr.Gbenga Dan Asabe, a popular bogger, in his timeline, which read “First Bank is big and … It is the only bank where you transfer money to another bank and the money seized in transit,” that was all that was needed to elicit the reactions of Nigerians sharing ugly experiences about the bank that was once known as the Standard Bank of Nigeria.
Here are some of their damning comments about the bank that is still smarting from the negative reports of the manhandling of its customer in its Lekki, Lagos State branch banking hall by policemen posted to the branch.

It’s crazy
The bank is old and tired.
And we must retire it by closing off our accounts with such a fraudulent behemoth

Adesola Adekunmi Bello Banji A Banji , Gbenga Dan Asabe said Fbn is the worst and you are saying GTB is? This depend on the rate at which you enjoy their services. I have enjoyed the two banks but I have preference for FBN.

Adesola Adekunmi Bello This has to do with your perception of any bank and your personal encounter wit

em stand as my measure. Empirical data can’t be called perception.

Adesola Adekunmi Bello Banji my own bloda, hear me wella, I have an account with GT, Fbn and ubn as well. Transfer services with gt and fbn is alwar good for me though, I enjoy fbn better than the 3mentioned. To me transfer service of UBN is the worst . I have stopped using it. I only use gt & Fbn. Oya judge my case?
