Polaris bank finally tenders public apology after Northern Muslims were stopped from observing Jumat service in leaked email

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Polaris bank finally tenders public apology after Northern Muslims were stopped from observing Jumat service in leaked email by Damilola I. Adebara. (Read More Here).

The leaked email made many Northern Muslims storm Polaris bank on Thursday to withdraw all their money in a form of boycott. 

The email reads: “Dear All, it has been observed that on Fridays, you leave your work desks to attend the Jumat service, bearing in mind the impact of your absence on the workflow and productivity of Yes Center.”

“Kindly note that there is no provision made anywhere in the Bank’s policy for employees to attend any religious activities during work hours.

“Going forward such permissions would not be granted on the Yes Center platform and any infraction of this directive would be dealt with accordingly. You are all expected to acknowledge the receipt of this mail. Thank you.”

Due to outrage and from the Muslims, Polaris bank rushed to social media to apologise. 

“The attention of the Bank has been drawn to a shared screenshot of mail sent by a supervisor to staff in her department in respect of Friday prayers.”

“This is to clarify that Nigeria is a secular nation and our Bank is guided by this standard.

“Accordingly, there is no policy in the Bank that forbids staff from practicing the religion of their choice; hence the said staff had acted in ignorance and we have since addressed the issue internally.”

“We assure all staff, customers, and the public that we will continue to respect the fundamental rights and freedom of worship of every employee,” the bank said.


Ovie wrote: "Muslims in the North withdraw their savings from Polaris Bank today Friday ,in a major run on bank after a memo came out cautioning Polaris employees in the Southwest not to take short break to observe prayers on work days.

"Polaris Bank has since apologised. Most of you will never understand the difficult position the employees find themselves because Sunday has been a National Holiday since the British made it so in 1914 and then 1960, so Sunday when you are going for worship, offices are closed.

"Polaris Bank doesn’t discriminate against Islam or any religion for that matter . That query to the employees was given without the approval of the bank and I believe it’s not right to punish Polaris Bank."
