Twitter Bank Wars: Sterling Bank Shades Other Banks, Other Banks Give All Shades Of Comebacks (Who Won?)


Drama began when social media handlers of Sterling Bank Plc posted am advert shading other Banks in a not-so-subtle way on Twitter.

Sterling Bank took to their Twitter to post the interesting advert with a caption that promised undecided customers better banking services. The post read, “Shoot for the moon, become a star – it’s the least you deserve. Welcome to #SterlingBank.


The image attached to the tweet, however, had all the shades you need to see.

Many people skimmed over the tweet, until a few discerning eyes noticed that the tweet was actually shading 4 others: Union Bank, First Bank, GT Bank and Access Bank.

And the named banks responded shortly after, dissing their colleague with witty tweets that stirred heated reactions on social media.

Access Bank was savage, writing:-


“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 the galaxy to you! #YouAreWorthIt #TakeTomorrow #KnowYourElders”

Union Bank then responded with the tweet..




First Bank had fewer words, but was no less caustic, characteristic of the elderly.



FCMB watched from the sidelines, observing with a bowl of popcorn lol.

GT Bank, however, was a no-show. Mature or scared? We don’t know.

Which bank do you think won the war? Drop your comments below…..
