I think the major reason is the exchange rate , if I spend 5 euro here and I try to convert it to Naira (currency in Nigeria) it will be very big.

Financial surprises: if you want to deposit money into your account, you have to go into the actual branch to do it, you are unable to do it through a banking machine (as is possible in Canada or the USA). If you're looking to save money on transactions, etc. then you should get yourself a bank account here. This is much more conveniant since you can use your chipnit card for nearly anything.
