Dear Felix,
Appreciate your good work. I'd like to know the maximum time for a fixed deposit tenure, can i fix my money for 3 years without a change in the initial interest agreement?
Also, will these banks comply to the stated rates regardless of capital size? e.g. if i have 2 million naira, will i be given the full measure of the interest rate or their will be capital discrimination?

You can fix your deposit for up to 1 year at a fixed interest rate. It might not be possible to do that for 3 years straight. Some banks offer a flat rate irrespective of your capital while some offer a graduated interest rate.
