CORPORATE STATEMENT: It's Not True, FirstBank Website Not Hacked

CORPORATE STATEMENT: It’s Not True, FirstBank Website Not Hacked-The largest banking institution in Nigeria, FirstBank has debunked tweet making round in the media space on shutting down FirstBank website by anonymous following a false tweet that the Bank prevented staff from joining the ongoing protests in the country.

The Financial institution made this known via an official statement issued by the management of the bank on Saturday.

CORPORATE STATEMENT: It's Not True, FirstBank Website Not Hacked

                                            CORPORATE STATEMENT

Our attention has been drawn to the tweet making the rounds on social media on shutting down the FirstBank website following a false tweet that the Bank prevented staff from joining the ongoing protests in the country.

As the largest banking institution in Nigeria, it is not unlikely that we may be seen as a target in circumstances such as these. This is rather unfortunate as we believe far reaching reform is necessary and we have said as much on a number of occasions across our platforms.

In the process of change, some pain will be borne by all and some anger may well be misdirected. We understand this as a part of the process of the struggle.

We have a large staff strength and an even larger customer base who may be affected by any disruption and this would be a pity as a number are also contributing in many ways to ensure that voices are heard and required action is taken.

We have been consistent in our message on the need to end all brutality and carry out necessary reforms. We will continue to lend our voice accordingly.

 

Signed

FirstBank
