According to the PTF team on COVID-19, banks would begin operation from Monday between the hours of 8am and 2pm for the three states presently under lockdown, on the orders of the President, Muhammadu Buhari, while adhering to social distancing measures.

Speaking at the briefing, Dr Aliyu stated: “From Monday, banks will open and they will operate normal services from 8am to 2pm. That is six hours but there will be the usual restrictions.

“For instance, self-distancing and the use of temperature monitors, hand hygiene, and making sure the capacities of banking halls are restricted so that people do not come together.”

It should be recalled that the President had, during his last nationwide broadcast on Monday April 27, stated that there would be phased and gradual easing of the lockdown from Monday 4th of May while ordering an overnight curfew in a bid to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
