CBN warns banks against ignoring customers’ complaints
The Director (Corporate Communications) of CBN, Ibrahim Mu’azu, who spoke at a stakeholders’ sensitization forum said the apex bank was seriously concerned about the way and manner customers’ complaints are being handled by new generation banks.
According to Muazu, the lackadaisical attitude of some of these new banks to the plights of their customers whenever they lodge complaints is cause for great concern. He warned that the Central Bank’s hammer will fall on any commercial bank that fails to address customers’ complaints within two weeks
He urged affected customers with genuine complaints to register such at the Customers Protection Department (CPD) of the CBN for proper action.
At the forum which was tagged “Promoting Financial Stability and Economic Development”, the director disclosed eight basic security features of genuine banknotes, especially those of the commemorative centenary N100 to include the “see through coconut feature located on the front of the note’s left corner.”
He said that cluster meetings and sensitization fairs would be organized from time to time to educate customers on their rights and privileges.
