Access Bank to Unfreeze #EndSARS Promoters' Accounts




Following the online campaign for customers to boycott Access Bank Plc, the management of the bank has announced that it is looking forward to unfreezing the bank accounts of affected #EndSARS promoters.

 
The Bank also expressed sympathy with the affected persons for freezing their accounts.
 
This was contained in a statement issued by Access Bank on Friday in which it explained that as a financial institution it was bound by the regulations of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.

The statement read in part: “We want to express our sympathy for the inconvenience that eight of our customers are going through due to the restrictions on their accounts as mandated by a federal court order. We are eager for this to be resolved as soon as possible

“It is common knowledge that we and the entire banking industry are regulated entities and therefore operate under the authority of our regulators and law enforcement agencies. As such we are compelled to comply with regulatory directives.

“While acknowledging the concern of all well-meaning parties, we urge that enquiries and views be channeled to the relevant regulatory and judicial agencies where the matter is receiving attention.

“It is therefore surprising that some individuals still choose to target Access Bank in a negative manner despite not being the source of the action.”
