Afiz who fielded questions from journalists at the First Bank Reloaded monthly draws held at the banks’ training institute Lagos last week however assured that additional cost would attract better services to customers.

“And when you add the cost of maintaining the ATM points and the cost of powering them, it wouldn’t be out of place if banks introduce additional service charge,” he said.
