It is no longer news that Alimosho LGA is the most populated local government area in West Africa with a population estimated at six million residents, 55% of which are bankable due to the commercial viability of the area which accrues from growing numbers of SMEs and MSMEs operating from the nooks and crannies of Alimosho.
Most businesses in the past have shied away from Alimosho Federal Constituency on account of a lack of basic infrastructure and services, including financial institutions; however, with the holding of her maiden Economic Summit tagged “The Alimosho Economic Summit 2017”, the Area has suddenly become the beautiful bride to numerous suitors. This development has seen Alimosho metamorphose into a new Lagos business haven and has attracted virtually all major banks to open branches around the community as have the microfinance institutions.
With about ten branches in Alimosho and environs, Access Bank, Plc has remained top on the list of banks with quality services to her numerous clientele. Looking at the location of the bank’s branches in Alimosho, it is clear represent a well-that Access Bsnk has put in place a well-structured arrangement aimed at ensuring residents and businesses can access the bank’s services within a distance of no more than a kilometer or even less from any location within the Area.
Access Bank’s time of attending to customers when compared with other banks remains far ahead as its personnel seem well equipped with knowledge on time value to both the bank and it’s teeming customers. Its introduction of customers’ assistant officers that welcome customers into the banking hall and stand at the ready to provide all required assistance through their warm reception and onward direction to the appropriate desk for an almost real-time service connotes nothing but a well thought out desire to provide professional banking services.
With the clamor for a cashless society, Access Bank, Plc has remained undoubtedly the bank to beat as its introduction of a wide variety of services ranging from her fast-track teller services for account owners, a highly reliable and secured internet banking that allows a customer to carry out virtually all transactions including opening of new accounts via mobile phones is unrivalled as is its mobile application for various operating systems which has among other facilities interactive platforms that enable customers to seamlessly solve issues without visiting the nearest branch as is the case with other banks.
With the population and economic size of Alimosho, it is evident that Access Bank’s automated teller machine (ATMs) outlets have proved to be among the most reliable in terms of her deliverables and less time consuming when compared with her contemporaries. This has further positioned her as a leader in banking services across the length and breadth of the most populated local government in West Africa.-Alimosho LGA.
The Alimosho Mail, as a leading crusader of Alimosho development, therefore solicits more of these quality services and an expansion into the rural areas of the LGA such as Ayobo, Ijegun Meiran etc. to further cushion the adverse effects of lack of banking services to residents and neighboring communities of Ogun State who throng to the few outlets to enjoy these services.
