Nigerian man vows to boycott banks

Reacting to the news, a man identified on X as @Mr_francis55 revealed that he would never leave his money in any bank.

“I will never intentionally put my money in the bank, it will only by emergencies,” he said.

The directive on cybersecurity fee reportedly applies to all commercial, merchant, non-interest, and payment service banks.

However, not all transactions will be affected by the latest directive, including loan disbursements and repayments, salary payments, and intra-account transfers within the same bank or between different banks for the same customer.
