The fuel scarcity being witnessed in Nigeria has
continued to cause a shutdown of business and leading
commercial bank, Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) has not
been left out.
The bank sent out an email notice to its customers on
Sunday, May 24, 2015, that it would be forced to close
its branches at 1pm instead of the usual time of 4pm
due to the fuel shortage.
The notice reads:
“The current shortage of petroleum products in the
country has limited our ability to supply diesel to all
our branches, in order to continue normal branch
operations.”
“Due to this, we unavoidably have to close our
branches nationwide at 1pm, from tomorrow Monday,
25th May 2015.”
“Whilst we have had to take this step to close branch
operations early, we would like to seek your
understanding at this time, and assure you that we will
continue to work hard at finding alternative solutions to
this situation and will advise you once the situation has
abated.”
“However, all our alternative channels will be fully
functional and available for all your Personal and
Business Banking.”
The scarcity has also led to the cancellation of flights
and the closure of radio stations.
Telecommunication companies, MTN and Airtel have
also warned that their services are likely to be affected
by the unavailability of fuel.
