Onyxnews Nigeria reports that Access Bank Plc is ready to close more than 300 of its branches nationwide.

This online news platform understands that this came in a bid to reduce its running costs as a result of the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Onyxnews Nigeria understands that this is happening after statement made by the group managing director/CEO of Access Bank, Herbert Wigwe via a video seen on Twitter.

Wigwe explained the reasons for a decision of mass retrenchment of its staff, stating that some of its branches will be closed up until December of this year.

He maintained that those to be affected by the mass retrenchment are mostly outsourced staff and workers offering nonessential services. This group makes about 75% of the Organisation’s staff strength in its branches nationwide.

However some Nigerians still wonder why such a reputable bank would downsize staff despite reported gain and a massive donation towards ongoing pandemic. The people of Nigeria also believe the move will be counter-productive for many families; especially the poor if the financial records of the bank truly show it has the capacity to cushion the effect of the deadly pandemic.

Below is the full list of branches to be shutdown
