First Bank of Nigeria Limited has reacted to the recent trend of animal swallowing public funds in Nigeria.
The reportage of snake swallowing N36m at a JAMB Office and a monkey eating another N70m instead of Banana took a viral dimension with Nigerians extending it to almost every aspect of national and personal lives.
A twitter user with the handle, @officialrohkip had tweeted thus:
“With the way animals swallow money now, I will have to close my @FirstBankngr account. I don’t trust that elephant on their logo….”.
Acknowledging the power of the social media and the probable impacts that may have on its customer base, the bank addressed the issue in a separate tweet saying:
“The Elephant on our logo represents trust, integrity, dependability, and loyalty. Let your First Bank account remain open. We are your trusted ally. #Stillstanding #Stilldependable #YouFirst .
First Bank restated that the elephant on its logo does not swallow customers’ deposits.
