A visit to some banks along Ring Road axis showed that most ATM machines were not dispensing while the only one dispensing had an uncontrollable number of people.
Though, the banks were opened for business as directed by CBN, but are yet to load their ATM machines with the new notes.
Frustration was seen on the faces of both bank staff and customers, who appeared stressed as a result of the number of people requiring their attention, while the customers at the ATM were not sure it would get to their turn before the naira notes get exhausted.
