Although speculations had been rife over the temporary closure of The Bank Club, Abuja, officials of the club have now announced that the club would not only return on February 17, but that it would come with a spectacular outlook to the delight its numerous patrons. Closing for renovation has been the usual tradition of the club as it enters every year in order to begin the New Year with a fresh and renewed outlook.
While announcing the re-opening of the club, its Chief Operating Officer, Alex Lawal said, “The Bank returns February 17. We have put everything in place and this has been our usual practice. You will recall that since inception, we renovate after every year.”
Reacting to why a club of such magnitude should go off for nearly a month in the name of renovation, Lawal said, “Like I said, it’s our usual tradition. Can’t you feel the aura? Can’t you feel freshness? The aim is to give our patrons the best. Club business is hot business in Abuja hence we must give patrons the best. They do not deserve anything less.”
He dispelled the ongoing rumour that the Bank Club was shutting business, saying, “That must be the figment of the imagination of rumour peddlers. We are still doing our stuff, and competitors can’t move us with their fake news. I think we remain the most reliable, affordable and entertaining club in Abuja. Just like the renovation, everything now looks new, including our operations.”
