Lockdown: ATM, mobile transfer, electricity charges should be suspended – PDP to Buhari

The major opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for the immediate suspension of charges for use of ATM cards and low amount mobile fund transfers during the COVID-19 lockdown.

The party said this in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, on Sunday in Abuja saying this would be part of the panacea to ease the burden on poor Nigerians during the lockdown.

The party called on the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to immediately open an arrangement with commercial banks to suspend the charges.

 “The PDP demands the CBN to immediately liaise with commercial banks and stimulate a special social sustenance modality to defray the cost of such charges, particularly to cover minimal transactions in favour of vulnerable Nigerians,” he said.
