#BankWars: Sterling Bank Apologies for ‘In shooting for the Moon’ post


In case you missed it. The #BankWars started when Sterling bank shared a picture on social media where a man in a rocket heading to the moon (depicted by Sterling Bank’s logo) and had the caption: “In shooting for the moon, men become stars.”

Virtually everyone loved the fun that followed after Sterling Bank‘s cheeky social media post that took a swipe at not less than 6 banks.

The joke was that about 6 banks’ buildings/logos were literally on the ground in the ad, with the Sterling Bank customer heading to the moon.

They unleashed something. Access Bank, Union Bank, First Bank replied to the ad, hitting back with memes while FCMB joined in as a spectator.

While the people on the internet loved this, most especially people on Twitter, however,  it appears Sterling Bank may have gotten a warning hence they released an apology saying:

Our apologies go out to all the banks -the likeness of whose logos & buildings featured in a post which we have since deleted. We remain committed to building an organisation that enables our youth find expression & we will continue to do this in the most responsible fashion.
