IMPORTANT UPDATE ON YOUR COMMUNITY BASIC ACCOUNT
The closure of unregistered community basic accounts was done to ensure adequate Know-Your-Customer (KYC) is available to safeguard your funds. Your association or society can be registered as an Incorporated Trustee (Clubs, Churches, and Associations) or as a Non-Governmental Organization, with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) or with the relevant Ministry in your State or Local Government in charge of Cooperative Societies. Once this is completed, please visit our nearest branch to submit your documents to this effect.
We urge you not to panic as your money is safe and accessible on demand. We also assure you and your association/community of our continued support. Please note that neither the bank nor any other party seeks to claim the funds held in your account.
