Commenting on the initiative, the Director of Products & Innovation at The Alternative Bank, Mohammed Yunusa, described the initiative as innovative and timely

He noted, “The Branch in a Box provides convenient, accessible banking services within trusted and familiar locations, staffed with well-trained customer service personnel to assist everyone.”

According to Yunusa, the Branch in a Box functions like traditional branches, offering a comprehensive range of banking services, including account opening, cash withdrawal and deposit, fund transfers, card pick-up, access to interest-free credit, and more.

The first batch of Branch in Box locations include TotalEnergies stations in Ojuelegba, Yaba, Fadeyi, Oshodi, and Ojota Lagos, with a nationwide rollout scheduled in the coming weeks, he stated.

General Manager at TotalEnergies, Abdullahi Umar, added, “We are committed to providing our customers with exceptional service and convenience.
