First Bank of Nigeria Limited has launched its fully automated branch, called the FirstBank Digital Experience Centre in Lagos.
In a statement on Tuesday, the bank said the centre which is piloted by the Bank’s remodelled Adetokunbo Ademola branch, Victoria Island, puts customers at an advantage in carrying out various activities on their own without interacting with anyone.
The bank said the milestone initiative is scheduled to hit other locations across the country’s geopolitical zones in the coming months.
