Nigeria banks and there crook way.

Not surprised one bit.
If there oga at cbn could do it, why won't first bank do it.

Bunch of them reap off innocent customers and are so shady.

They are only nice to you when you want to deposit in there bank

from there security man who opens the door for you and tells you "welcome to first bank, thank for banking with us" to the always smiling cashier who collects your money from you.

Na u go open the door yourself without any greetings again after depositing with them.


And why do they tie there pen with chain?

They had jobs that paid them.... or i guess the pay wasn't enough. That's why all this job craze ain't worth it.. The meagre paid compared to family demands could push you into something evil..

143 millions lines are connected today in Nigeria, more than half of that are making use of the internet service on their Smartphones, PC's and Tablets. Almost all of that number use more than 1 gigabyte worth of data monthly. That is, the normal Johnny on the street probably spends an average of #2000 surfing the web every month and #24,000 yearly. The amount goes higher when you move up a level higher to you and me. What are we doing with the data? Just scrolling through pages, viewing pictures and videos or actually doing something that could boost our financial status.

While some people may argue that people just want to buy data to do these, i have no problem with that. But i am aware there is no man on the planet who is comfortable with where he is. Human wants are insatiable, thus the hunger for improvement in every sphere of human nature. If you are one of such persons who has gotten to that point where you just don't feel right being on a Trillion Dollar per month platform which is the internet and not even able to make a single dollar off it, then this is for you..
