Commercial banks have begun adjusting operating hours and days to help Nigerians deposit their old Naira notes.

Banks across the country operate between 8.00 am and 4.00 pm every working day

But in a notice issued to its customers, Fidelity bank said all its branches would open by 8.00 am and close by 6.00pm on weekdays and the same time for Saturdays, specifically for cash deposits.

The move complies with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) instructions for banks to operate more than the regular hours to ease depositing old Naira notes.
