The conference themed, ‘’Mobile Money in Nigeria: Challenges, Opportunities and Threats’’ will feature seasoned experts from the banking and telecoms sectors to proffer solutions to the challenges and opportunities that abound in the use of mobile money payment system.
Speaking at a press conference organised by the association in Lagos, Bennet Frimpong, Marketing Manager, Personal and Business Banking, Stanbic IBTC said the reason to partner Brand Journalists Association of Nigeria on the conference is to ensure that Nigerians move forward in whatever they do.
“As a holding company, our agenda is to make progress real in the lives of the customers. We need to tell them that going mobile is one key thing that saves people a lot. It saves you the drive to the bank, it saves you the drive to anywhere you to go and have access to your money. Being in the comfort of your room you can do anything on your phone that saves you a lot of journey, energy and stress’’, he said.
He added that, ‘We need to send the message home to every Nigerian that in times like this, they need to find creative ways of getting more incomes in their pool. They should look at ways that will ensure less strain on their disposable incomes.
