SHOCKING! First Bank ATMs Dispense 2.8 Trillion Naira
This is not what your are thinking. First Bank ATMs did not in one fell swoop, dispense 2.8 trillion naira.
It is the total sum the bank's ATMs across the country dispensed in one year, that is, from January to December 2017.
The bank’s Group Head of E-Business, Chuma Ezirim, said in a statement in Lagos on Monday that the bank also accounted for 37% bill payment services on ATMs in the nation’s banking industry.
That means that customers or not, many ATM users made several forms of payment from a First Bank ATM.
In the statement made available to the media, Ezirim said about 402,102 bill payments were made through Firstbank’s ATMs in 2017, while airtime worth about 1.7 billion naira was purchased through the machines.
The official said that the bank had the highest number of ATMs, having deployed 2,897 of the machines across the country.
“The bank’s ATMs have unique functional features which include bills payment, cash transfer, air-time top-up, cash deposit, among others,’’ he said.
He added that the bank would continue to cater for the financial service needs of its customers in line with its strategy to drive convenience and ease in banking.
