To ensure a smooth process for clients to return the old Naira notes they may still have in their possession, the United Bank for Africa Plc has modified its banking hours.
According to TheNewsGuru, this was stated in a statement issued by the bank in response to a recent development at the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Recall that the CBN announced the introduction of new Naira notes on Wednesday. These notes will go into circulation on December 15, 2022, while the current Naira notes will continue to be valid until January 20, 2023.
UBA said in the statement that its branches will be open on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm for cash deposits only, as a way to assist its customers throughout the changeover.
Customers were asked by the bank to begin bringing their old Naira notes to the nearby UBA branches.
“Don’t panic, we are adjusting our branch opening hours for your convenience. Zero charges will apply for all cash deposits.
“Remember, present notes can still be used for the purchase of goods and services until cut off date in January,” the statement reads.
