It was indeed a merry Monday
at Access Bank Plc yesterday as members of staff were pleasantly surprised by a
salary increase in spite of the prevailing economic realities in
The Bank’s leadership, headed by Herbert Wigwe,
approved this increase to cushion the effect of rising costs in the
country. This information was obtained from members of staff who were
delighted by this gesture from the Bank.
An employee who
confirmed this in confidence said: “I am speechless. I don’t think
anyone saw this coming, this is happening at a time when my friends in
other banks are losing their jobs. It feels great to be supported in
such trying times. Thank you Uncle Herbie”
Wigwe was unavailable for comments as at press time.
