Gone are the days when people have to go to banks or the ATM to queue in order to send money to loved ones Especially in Nigerian banks. Technology has made a lot of things easier that with your phone anywhere you are you can control the movement of huge sums of money via USSD…banking on-the-go. Think about the times when you taking a poo in the toilet, suddenly an emergency call comes in telling you to send some money to a particular account as soon as possible, you just had to speed up things in the toilet and dash to the nearest bank ASAP….well you don’t have to do that now as long as you have a phone with a phone number registered and authorized with your bank.
