Fidelity Bank, one of Nigeria’s leading financial institutions has urged the general public to be wary of some ‘misguided’ individuals who are planning social media attacks against the bank.
These ‘misguided’ individuals who are also plotting disruption of service in order to cast the bank in bad light were identified as few outsourced staff who were recently recalled by their employers.
This is made known in a statement made available to newsheadline247.
According to the statement, Fidelity Bank, as a responsible financial institution operating in Nigeria is guided by the laws of the country hence, will not be against the right to lawful assembly.
It, however, added that “the planned actions directed at Fidelity Bank, by these misguided individuals, are clearly unwarranted and misdirected.”
The statement reads;
“Lagos Nigeria: September 26, 2019. Our attention has been drawn to the planned disruption of service and social media attacks on the Bank by a few outsourced staff who were recently recalled by their employers.
“The move, which is the handiwork of the outsourced staff who were on secondment to the Bank as Note Counters, is aimed at casting the Bank in bad light.
“Their employers have confirmed to the Bank that their recall was conducted in line with their existing contracts and according to extant labour laws.
“As a responsible financial institution, operating in Nigeria, Fidelity Bank is guided by the laws of the land. Whilst we are not against the right to lawful assembly, the planned actions directed at Fidelity Bank, by these misguided individuals, are clearly unwarranted and misdirected.
“We urge the public to disregard the falsehood and claims being circulated by them in the public domain.”
