Mr Segun Agbaje, the Managing Director of Guaranty Trust Bank, says the bank will continue to provide customers with superior banking experience across all digital touchpoints.
Agbaje made the promise in Lagos after GTB won eight of the twelve honours available to banks in the 2019 edition of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Electronic Payment Incentive Scheme (EPIS) Efficiency Awards.
The financial institution won the awards for efficiency and excellent service delivery in virtually every E-payment channel.
