Most banks will close operations between 12noon and 2pm today. THE CITIZEN has learnt.

This means that they will close at least two hours short of their normal closing hours, as some banks already sent out emails and short message services (SMS)to their customers announcing the changes to their normal operational schedule.

Both Guaranty Trust Bank and Access Bank announced that they would be open for business between 8am and 2pm today, while some other banks like Diamond Bank will only be open for four hours - between 8am and 12noon.

THE CITIZEN learnt that almost all the banks have made similar alterations on their operating time for the day, their reason is to enable them close their books for the year. Banks' accounting year now end December 31.
