He explained that with SmartCash, banking will be more convenient for Nigerians across the divide.

Muyiwa added that the company has put in place robust technical mechanism to protect and secure customers’ transactions.

He explained that with SmartCash, “Your phones is your bank. As long as long as you have a phone, you are eligible to have a relationship with SmartCash; Building a banking relationship with SmartCash is very easy, it is very secure and it is very simple.

“The key essence of SmartCash PSB is to come and bridge the financial gap in Nigeria. As you know, we have a lot of people in rural areas who are probably far from the cities, and are reasonably excluded today.

“SmartCash service bank is highly secured, it is very safe, we operate business thinking about our customers. The safety of our customers is the first for us, it is the most important element in everything you do and so because of that, we continue to do businesses in a way that will safe guard the funds of the customers that place money with us.

“We are in Wuse Market Abuja, just to sensitize people about SmartCash PSB. And we are trying to connect with every person on the street to let them know that SmartCash is the bank that is made for them”, he stated.

The official launching of SmartCash PSB was held on Thursday last week at Eko Hotel Lagos with Nigeria Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo and other key stakeholders in attendance.

Recall that Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) had in April this year granted approval to SmartCash, an Airtel subsidiary to operate as a Payment Service Bank (‘PSB’) in Nigeria.
