KPMG Nigeria sees significant growth in mobile banking

By Babajide Komolafe

THE last thing any bank customer expects in this age is a bank branch operating in darkness. That was the experience of a bank customer as reflected in one of the complaints below. Some of the complaints also show that some banks are yet to perfect the mobile money applications and money transfer services.


David Gabriel

Is that the current exchange rate or you guys are joking, because it will be showing  N308 here but when someone buys dollars  you guys will charge something else

At Sterling Bank Plc

Hi David, thank you for contacting us, please be informed that it is the exact rate you will be charged.

Hello please  help me, I  opened a Kia Kia account in Abeokuta Ogun state and a certain amount was sent into my account but I  didn’t receive the  alert and the  money was not in my account. I was told the money was too much for the Kia Kia account and I had to upgrade it. I upgraded it and a mail was forwarded to the head office on my behalf, but I am yet to receive the money in my account. Please what is happening?

Maude Galdimari

I opened unity bank account recently but I was disappointed when I went   to deposit money in one of their branches and find it in darkness,  no light, nothing was  taking place. Please provide standby generators for your branches. Even the bank door was opened because there was no light.

Unity Bank Plc

Ademola Awwal Kolawole

I made a transfer from my Wema Bank account to this my GTbank account for past 1hour. I got no credit alert. What is wrong? I got Wema bank informed, but they said you guys were having issue with your platform. What is the problem, better return my money.

Wema Bank Plc

Hello. Please do check the account balance of the receiving account because you may not receive alerts on all transactions. Also, what platform was the transfer made? And we are not experiencing any hlitch with any of our platforms at the moment. Please do revert with your findings. Thank you.

Ademola Awwal Kolawole

Please spare me words. The two accounts are mine, but the sender is from Wema and receiver from Gtbank. I own the two accounts. I have checked the balance many times, but no reversal to that effect. I used your  mobile money app, you better do something because tomorrow is Monday, I won’t take this issue simple. This is the right time, you had been doing it to me many times before.

Wema Bank Plc

Hello. Kindly send your account details, phone number and email address as a private message to investigate further. Thank you
