A CRITICAL INVESTIGATION OF THE EFFECT OF COVID-19 LOCKDOWN AND POS WITHDRAWAL CHARGES IN LAGOS STATE

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

COVID-19 was discovered in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. however, it spread rapidly and did negatively impacted all countries and territories around the world. Over 6 million COVID-19 cases had been registered worldwide as at 5 octomber 2020, with over 1,000000 deaths (Johns Hopkins University, 2020; WHO) (2020). These figures were mind-boggling, and the pandemic became a defining global health issue in recent history.

According to health researchers, the disease does not discriminate against individuals based on their age, sex, gender, color, ethnicity, social status, or other social characteristics (WHO, 2020). Older individuals, low-income households, aboriginal peoples, and persons with underlying infectious or immune conditions, on the other hand, are assumed to be more vulnerable to the pandemic (WHO, 2020).

The virus was first discovered in Nigeria on February 27, 2020, when an Italian resident entering the country tested positive for the virus, which is caused by SARS-CoV-2. On March 9, 2020, a Nigerian citizen who had contact with the Italian index case confirmed a second case of the virus in Ewekoro, Ogun State. The widespread and dissemination of COVID-19 virus has thrown countries around the world, including Nigeria, into a health crisis.

To combat the spread of COVID-19, the Federal Government, in collaboration with state governments, imposed a lockdown in Lagos, Abuja, and Ogun, which was later expanded to other parts of the country. as a result the economy has been disrupted, with nearly all aspects of the economy being affected - movement of individuals and products has been limited, schools have been closed, social and religious activities have been prohibited, and offices were closed. The most unbearable being the fact that individuals had daily financial needs which can only be sorted out through to the help of bank services.

Mobile banking which is one of the major commercial banks services appeared to be the only alternative which can be embraced during this period as it facilitates multi transactional features through the availability of smart phone, the POS etc.

The availability of POS by the roadsides assisted individuals to withdraw funds, make cash deposits and transfers etc. However the imposed lockdown in Nigeria limited the operations of POS businesses thereby resulting to scarcity of withdrawal points and other banking service. This however amounted to an unusual service charge by the few available POS operators in Lagos State Nigeria. Hence it is upon this note that this study desires to investigate the resultant effect of Covid-19 lockdown and POS withdrawal charges in Lagos State Nigeria.

The accessibility of POS aided individuals in performing cashless transactions and other financial activities. However, Nigeria's enforced lockdown restricted the activities of POS businesses, resulting in a shortage of withdrawal points and other banking services. However, the few available POS operators in Lagos State, imposed an odd service fee as a result of this.
