Commercial banks begin indefinite strike in Niger

Commercial banks in the state of Niger have started an indefinite strike following the disagreement with the National Revenue Office over tax evasion which led to the closure of eight banks since September 8 by the National Revenue Office internal to Niger.

Although details of the strike are still unclear, a staff member at Access Bank Minna, who prefers to remain anonymous, told our correspondent that the strike was caused by a new tax introduced by the state government.

All ATM centers have also been closed by banks, leaving customers with only POS as an alternative.

The state customers, however, appealed to the state government to urgently resolve the issue, as it would aggravate the problems for the citizens.
