COVID-19: Polaris Bank commends medics, restates commitment to service delivery


Polaris Bank has once again commended medical professionals, and all those at the frontlines of the fight to flatten the COVID-19 curve, even as the nation continues to battle the spread of the pandemic.

In a statement issued in the wake of the Federal Government’s extension of the lockdown in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun states, the bank’s Head, Strategic Brand Management and Communication, Nduneche Ezurike, hailed the role of medical personnel in the fight against the virus that is currently ravaging the entire world.

The bank also praised the media for keeping Nigerians up to date with timely and accurate information; a situation which has made it easier for citizens to be regularly informed on emerging trends as well as COVID -19 updates thereby enabling them to cope with the challenges of the times.

The lender said it has mobilized its staff to continue to deliver financial services to lessen the pain of the lock-down on its customers within the limits of the operating guidelines during the period.

Through its various communication channels, the bank has continued to assure its customers and the general public of its unwavering commitment to uninterrupted quality service during this next phase of the lockdown, noting that: “Our alternative channels are available for customers’ use 24/7.”
