COVID-19:Stanbic IBTC Urges Nigerians To Make Safety Paramount

Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC, a member of Standard Bank Group, has assured its esteemed customers of a continued commitment to instituting proactive steps to safeguard against the COVID-19 pandemic.

To this end, the financial institution, in tandem with the World Health Organization’s advisory on social distancing, has advised limiting person-to-person interactions amidst other safety measures.

Yinka Sanni, Chief Executive, Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC, commended the efforts of various relevant agencies and healthcare givers as they try to manage the pandemic. He further urged the financial institution’s customers to adhere to safety and hygienic measures to protect themselves.

He said: “Given our commitment to ensuring unhindered, seamless access to financial services round the clock, we advise our customers to minimize person-to-person interface and take advantage of the always-on seamless digital platforms. The full range of our financial services can be accessed on our various ATMs, Mobile App, Online Banking and USSD platforms.”

He added that the organisation has also strategically installed automatic hand sanitizer dispensers in all banking halls and offices across the country while also increasing the intensity/frequency of their cleaning processes. He urged all customers to take full advantage of these as well as other necessary precautions.

“Good hygiene practices such as cleaning of hands frequently with alcohol-based hand sanitizers or soap and water; covering of nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with a tissue or flexed elbow, and avoidance of close contact (1 metre or 3 feet) with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms is essential to reducing the risk of infection” he reiterated.

He noted that Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC also has a robust travel advisory in place for staff. Travels have been restricted to minimal essential local journeys, with strict caution on international trips.

According to him, “COVID-19 is today a global challenge and we will continue to adhere to updated health advisory while working with relevant agencies to curtail the impact. We must, however, remain vigilant and prepared to control the spread. At Stanbic IBTC, we see this as our collective responsibility and we will keep monitoring the situation closely and duly disseminate relevant information as they unfold.”

The World Health Organisation has declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, underscoring its growing prevalence. The impact of COVID-19 is equally precipitating a global economic crisis even as control measures have distorted travels and tourism across the world.

The COVID-19 virus has also taken its toll on financial markets globally. According to Bloomberg, the average global growth forecast has dipped from 2.3% in 2019 to 1.4% in 2020. Crude oil price has also dropped from $54.45bpd as of February 03, 2020, to $30.62bpd on March 16, 2020.

Similarly, the benchmark 10-yr bond (Feb 2028) which closed at 10.76% p.a. on February 18, 2020, traded as high as 14.20% p.a. during the last month and eventually settled to 12.75% p.a. as at close of business on March 13, 2020. The Nigerian Stock Exchange All-Share Index also slipped -17.27% from 27,547.56 on February 18, 2020, to 22,789.64 on March 18, 2020.

    290345 814142The book is wonderful, but this review is not exactly spot-on. Being a Superhero is far more about selecting foods that heal your body, not just eating meat/dairy-free. Processed foods like those mentioned in this review arent what Alicia is trying to promote. In the event you arent open to sea vegetables (and yes, Im talking sea weed), just stop at vegan. 190808

    Good day! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
