If you've got or intend having a savings account in a Nigerian bank and concerned about how much interest your savings actually earns you, then it would be wise to take a look at some of the top banks that offer the highest interest on a savings account.

According to a CBN report on the Average Deposit and lending rates of banks as at August 2012 as published on the CBN website here

5 Banks with Highest rates on savings
=====================
1. Standard chartered 3.5
2. Diamond bank 3.3
3. Fidelity 3.0
4. Unity 3.0
5. Sterling 2.5


Low paying bank rates for savings
=================
Skye bank offered the lowest rates at about 0.04 followed by the trio of First bank, Access bank and UBA which offered just 1% on savings

So now you know which banks pay you more for your savings and the ones that pay less.
