After about 280 staff were sacked by MTN on Worker's Day, Eco bank, one of the commercial banks in Nigeria says it has concluded plans aimed at reducing its workforce and closing down some unviable branches in a bid to reorganise its services in 2017.
Chief Executive Officer, Ade
Ayeyemi, disclosed this while speaking on Wednesday at the World Economic Forum for
Africa in Durban. The bank, which has its affiliates in other parts of the African
continent, according to him, had taken the decision to close some of its
branches in Nigeria as part of ongoing investments in digital
platforms. To that effect, over 50 of its total of 200 branches, said not to be
suitable for the new plans it is about to embrace would soon go.
