Banks customers will from September 1, 2014 pay a token for cash withdrawals made on other banks’ Automated Teller Machines, the Central Bank of Nigeria said in a directive released on Wednesday.

The re-introduction of the ATM charges came almost two years after the CBN and the Deposit Money Banks cancelled the N100 ATM charge in December 2012.

The new directive for the reintroduction of the charge was posted on the CBN website, but instead of N100 per withdrawal, customers using other banks’ ATMs will now pay N65.

According to the order, which was contained in the circular signed by the Director, Banking and Payment Systems Department, CBN, Mr. Dipo Fatokun, the central bank and the DMBs agreed to re-introduce the ATM charges because the cost of transaction was becoming too burdensome for the banks to continue to bear.

Fatokun also said the charge would become effective on the fourth ATM withdrawal in a month, thus making the first three withdrawals on other banks’ ATMs within the m…

Be informed that the last Senate's meeting was held on Wednesday,July 30th,2014 and the next one would be held on Wednesday,24th September,2014.This is,in no doubt,subject to the drafted academic calendar for the current 2013/2014 Academic Session.

Having decided on the new academic calendar, at a special meeting of the senate, the resolution would, thereafter, be forwarded to the stakeholders for receipt and acknowledgments accordingly.

More importantly, the decision of the stakeholders/management would, therefore, be communicated to the Federal Ministry of Education,which would in turn act on the school's re-opening on the school's management recommendation(s).

Conclusively, I have to make this clear to us that our resumption is not feasible in this month and in the early weeks of September. This is,…
