    I love this movement and I hope our fellow Nigerians on the street can understand the purpose of this protest. Guys don’t forget to vote for Uche ” Bella ” Pedro at Kids Choice Awards 2016 because your votes count.

    If someone pays 5 million naira into your account and you must withdraw it today or the money gets taken by the depositor, will you still be down with the #nobankingday movement????

      Missed the point I see. Imagine having only N1,000 in your account to survive a month and the bank deducts N400 and gives it some superficial name…..that’s what this is about. People are being ripped off left and right. I was debited twice for a transaction and I have been chasing GTB for almost 2 months to get my money back. Even millionaires are complaining about being ripped off. My friend was charged N5000 and they called it bank charge. What bank charge? For people that are struggling? I can’t even find a polite way to address this your almost impossible hypothetical example, so I will just end here

    it should be war against GTB, they played a fast one on people over the weekend. They were charging N199.9 for a dollar only for them to start taking extra at the rate of N300 per dollar and claiming system glitch. how wicked can these people be.

    This is so important and on point. Like they say, the reason they are in business is because of us. our money is what is making them rich

    Nigerians…………….these are banks ohh, the fulcrums of the economy. Nobody anywhere likes banks, hell historically parts of the reason for anti-semitism is the Jews being bankers.

    This does nothing, the banks don’t care if you use their services as long as your cash is in their coffers for them to play around with, meaning if this movement isn’t nipped in the bud, it won’t be long before somebody suggests a bank run(monumentally bad idea).

    If you’re displeased with your bank, change banks, but let’s not try any blanket anti-bank movements, if the worst happens, they’ll get bailouts we won’t.

    what a flop this campaign was. How do you tell people not to transact for 24 hours? a more realistic goal woulda been to do a three hour limit or till 12 noon at most.
    repackage and try again biko, I will be glad to join then.
