Apparently, Nigerian banks are in a banter battle on twitter today, and it’s about 6 to 7 banks vs 1 bank.

FIRST BLOOD: Sterling Bank drew first blood this morning with an artwork firing shots to about 7 banks, but OBP can decode only 6 banks in the Artwork.

First Blood by Sterling Bank.
In the image above, we see in the forefront are Access Bank, Guaranty Trust Bank, First Bank and Union Bank.

In the background, we see Zenith Bank (HQ Building) and the building directly behind the man on the elephant is UBA House (HQ Building). Some say there’s Wema Bank, but I don’t know what their HQ looks like.

As expected, there were clapbacks, and we feature them below.

1) Union Bank

Union Bank was the first to respond to this attack;

Tweeting “Heading to the Moon without a spacesuit… journey mercies 🚶🏾‍♂️🚶🏾‍♂️#simplersmarterSAFERbanking

Going back to the artwork, we notice the man on the spaceship has an helmet on but no spacesuit. The hashtag also laid emphasis on the SAFER to show that customer safety is a priority.

2) Access Bank

Access Bank followed suit with a jab as well; tweeting “We will travel on an imaginary rocket too, if we were a one-customer Microfinance Bank; but with ten million customers and counting, we rather bring galaxy to you! #YouAreWorthIt #TakeTomorrow #KnowYourElders

One-Customer Bank is Sterling’s motto and the fact that their customer base is under 10million they were referred to as a Microfinance Bank in search of customers in space.

3) Union Bank

Union Bank followed suit with a Godfather/Mafia response, tweeting “#TheStallion stays observing. Don’t bring a knife to a gun fight. We’ve got snipers over here. You will come up short. #NoViolence #TeamUNION #UNIONBLUE

Then followed it up with another tweet; “There’s no coming back after “Ether” or “Story of Adidon”…settle down now, take a deep breath. Back to counting this Naira, Dollars and Pounds…”

And then with this.

4) First Bank

First Bank joined in and tweeted “…And straight into the trash can #Respect Your Elders #MoveOver #NextPlease #YouFirst

Then followed it up with another tweet. “What an elder sees while seating, a child cannot see even if he travels to the moon. #RespectYourElders #YouFirst

So far, GTB, Zenith and UBA haven’t joined the fracas and we will continue to update this post with every new response.

Whose response do you like the most?
