Lagosians to a large extent complied with the #NoBankingDay protest initiated to curtail the excesses of commercial banks in the country.

Nigerians today declared the 1st of March as
#NoBankingDay. The protest is aimed at expressing their displeasure of the high charging rates by Nigerian banks.

A non-profit group, Consumer Advocacy Foundation of Nigeria (CAFON), dedicated to advocacy for consumer rights and protection is leading the protest.
Led by Sola Salako, CAFON and the Coalition of Nigerian Consumer Protection Associations have designated March 1, 2016, as a “No Banking Day”, calling on banks’ customers to boycott all forms of banking activities and banks.
According to Salako, the #NoBankingDay is aimed at persuading Nigerian banks to review their charges downwards. The group is also calling for a review of bank forms and contracts to include more protection for consumers and for consumer complaints to be resolved promptly and satisfactorily.

Other demands are that banks must clear fees with consumers before debiting their accounts and that CBN must review the new Stamp Duty Charge, Account Maintenance Charge and Debit Card Maintenance Fees.

All banks located on Adeniyi Jones, Ikeja Lagos were practically empty as branches of GT bank, Access bank and Standard Chartered bank were visited.
