All Nigerian banks in conjunction with NIBSS (Nigeria Interbank Settlement Scheme) have commenced a communication awareness campaign to enlighten Nigerians on the benefits of these e-payment platforms, encourage usage and adoption of these payment options.

Nigerians are enjoined to embrace the e-payment platforms due to their safety, reliability and efficiency coupled with the attendant security issues with making payments through cash transactions.

These e-payment platforms have become globally acceptable means for financial transactions and banks are encouraging Nigerians to adopt same for their transactions.

The e-payment platforms are highly convenient, safe and efficient, and with improved infrastructure, transaction values can be received instantly.

The improved efficiency of the e payment platforms enhances greater penetration and accessibility to financial services by the people.

The on-going campaign on radio and other news media will be complemented by the use of consumer engagement activities (road shows, one on one contact marketing), digital and online advertising.
