Cashless Christmas

Reports say that a lot of Nigerians were left stranded and frustrated on Friday when Automated Teller Machines in most banks across the country dispensed less cash some cases and failed to do so in some areas.



Was any Blog Visitor affected by this?
I have never seen or heard of a Christmas as terrible as this one and i pray to God that it never gets this bad again!

    3. Yes o, I got this information on Thursday but since I wasn't too such only told few people to withdraw to be on a safe side.
      I really don't know Wat they plan to get out of this .Even at night if u see the crowd at ATM u go fear.
      But once the holiday is over everything will be back to normal.

    4. Why can't we go cashless? Like using POS for payment and the rest, must we alway queue?

    5. DH left the house as early as 5:30am to go to the atm, but no cash. Checked Dutse jxn, went to Gwarimpa. No cash.

      But luckily, at Wuse 2, we just saw an atm with just 1 person on the queue, he withdrew and thank God.

    6. Madam stellz its very much true oooo!!

      My friend left Abia state entirely to go to owerri just because he wanted to use the ATM but no way..when he got to owerri,there was much queue in almost every ATM for different banks as well,and he spent almost the whole of yesterday waiting for the ATM to dispense..

      A customer also said he went to withdraw cash of #200,000 from the bank,and the bank told him straight that they cant pay more than #100000 naira because they were short of cash at the moment cos of soo many people who wanted to withdraw..choi,laff no fit gree me!! Your money oooo!!!!

      So many banks closed their gate yesterday and people who wanted to use the ATM were just stranded outside..

      Naija,i hail thee!!!

  8. I blame this on the govt., I'm sure it's a conspiracy to tame people from enjoying their hard-earned money. Why would the implications of recession fall on us the ordinary Nigerians?! When the political elites and their cohorts trigger it and are shamelessly enjoying the cash they had stored in their farm and store.

    Surely, there is a day of reckoning for all these injustice been done to us. You work, you are in trouble. You don't work you're in trouble.

  19. But when MMM did theirs the whole world carried it. What's the difference now? MMM runs like a bank, for it to run successfully there has to be sufficient depositors funds, but people don't get it.

I have toured almost all the Atm machines in Phc, no one is dispensing cash even when i tried withdrawing from the counter yesterday, there was no money to pay us and the banking hall was filled up with people trying to withdraw.

  32. The truth is that Nigeria is a messed up country. There is too much cash in circulation. We have to really go cashless. The govt have to work on this pos network issue. Most times when ATMs are not dispensing, most people think the ATMs are cashed out, this is 90% untrue. The ATMs are not built to hold so much pressure.they are meant to rest after each withdrawal and notes in nigeria are not fit.We have bastardised and overused these machines. Believe me, they will keep breaking down. We need advanced tech in nigeria.we are not moving forward at all.

  34. Yesterday in pH..a man wanted to withdraw 500k...the casheir told him that he can't withdraw such amount only for the to pick a rod there and hit on the guys head..the reason is that after wasting his time, he still have the guts to limit his withdrawal.,I can't even think of going to the bank for now

  35. I left my house very early yesterday morning,got to Gtb the queue was something else,I quickly rushed to queue at Access Bank,one out of 6Atm machines was paying,I stood on that queue from 8am to 11am,about 5people to get to my turn,the cash was exhausted and I went inside the banking hall to tell them that the only Atm machine paying has run out of cash and he's response was 'we are aware and I won't advice you to wait',I found my way to First Bank a little bit far,another crowd,but since all the machines were dispersing I waited,this was at 12noon, I was tired I couldn't stand anymore,the lady by my side said it was my shoes giving me the back ache, I removed them,sat down somewhere,and again 6people to my turn the cash was exhausted and I had no choice than to rebuke the witch that won't let me withdraw to die by fire,lol,it didn't take them 15 minutes to reload the machines and I was able to withdraw.

  40. It's worse in ph, the queues at ATMs are appalling but people have no choice cuz inside the bank is worse..got into GTBank 2days ago and they said one can't withdraw more than 10k. Yesterday morning as early as 6am I went to first bank by Agip, we were made to wait till 8:15 before we were allowed into the premise to withdraw n we were more than 200 as at that time. We were even given numbers but when the gate was opened, som people who weren't given numbers were trying to be smart...I swear,we were more than 400 as at the time I left there...it wasn't easy but I finally got mine
