Residents Of Benin City Keep Vigil At Bank ATMs
Few of the ATMs in some banks visited in Benin on Saturday were dispensing cash.
Just few hours to Christmas, Benin residents are keeping vigil in the banks to use Automated Teller Machines (ATMs),
Many of the residents said that they had been in some of the banks as early as 5a.m.to avoid the crowd that would arrive in the bank premises later.
They also raised concern about their suffering in getting access to the machines which they alleged were not even fed with enough cash for the day.
“I don’t understand how one, with his money in the bank, can find it extremely difficult to make use of ATMs,” a resident of Benin City said.
He called for the relevant authorities to urgently look into the matter, especially bank managers in Benin.
“It was because of the cash challenges that made the bank to load few ATMs” Mrs Nkechi Goddy-Asekomhe, resident of Benin said after several attempt to use the ATM.
Mrs Nkechi said said she met with one official of a particular bank whom she said told that.
