ABUJA, (CAJ News) – SOME Nigerian banks that have suspended operations because of crippling fuel shortages will resume operations after workers in the fuel sector suspended their strike.

It is expected the suspension of the industrial action as announced on Monday would improve the supply o fuel.

Prior to the announcement, some banks had halted operations but checks by CAJ News established the banks would resume operations on Tuesday.

“We are pleased to inform you that from tomorrow, Tuesday, 26th of May
2015, all our branches nationwide will resume normal banking hours of 8am – 5pm for all your banking services, as the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) have announced the suspension of the petroleum product strike,” a notice from Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) to its customers read.

The bank also apologised to its customers for inconvenience during the
early closure period.
