Guaranty Trust Bank has notified its customers that it will be closing early from Monday, 25 April due to the lingering scarcity of petroleum products across the country.
The bank which closes business activities 5:00 pm said in a notice on Sunday that it will close by 1:00 pm because of diesel shortage.
The notice was sent to its customers and titled: Notice of Early Closure of Branches.
It goes thus:
Notice of Early Closure of Branches
The current shortage of petroleum products in the country has limited our ability to supply diesel to all our branches, in order to continue normal branch operations.
Due to this, we unavoidably have to close our branches nationwide at 1pm, from tomorrow Monday, 25th May 2015.
