  1. Of course bankers will continue to gain access to customers’ bank details considering the mode of bank transactions carried out currently. For instance, almost every banking activity one undertakes requires the filling of many cumbersome Forms which most customers notwithstanding their educational status, still resort to the bankers to help them fill and process.

    Tiresome hurdles to smooth banking indeed and they aid all these fraudulent practices were read about.

  2. How can this country survive with every institution rotten to the core? Both private and public.

    The name NIGERIA is always associated with every crime and evil on this planet. Any place you find yourself and said you are Nigerian,people will distance themselves and one will be standing alone like a lost sheep.
