There are strong indications that the alleged minimum balance of N5,000 and N25,000 being imposed by a Nigerian Bank, UBA plc on it customers might hit a brickwall with many Nigerians condemning it.
At the moment, there is a strong campaign going round that people should condemn the act.
An email sent to Gistmaster today reads “UBA and 25000 Balance !Naija is a country where the minimum wage of N18,000 is still being debated on by those criminals that govern us. To add insult to injury, UBA has the audacity to make their minimum balance N25,000 from today 4/7/11, but they must be taught a lesson.
“We must not keep silent. If you have an account with UBA, even if u have millions, just transfer your money to a more reasonable bank and close the UBA account.Their stupid management will have to either bank their own personal money or eat their words!!! And please spread this message on ur facebook, twitter,BBM and to the grassroots, so they get the message!!! MTN experience has shown that these kind of broadcast works. We have to help ourselves in Naija because our leaders aren’t interested in us!!!. JOIN us in comdemning this charade,retrogressive and anti masses policy.
