UBA USSD Code {Transfer, Airtime Recharge, Balance}

In 2012, CBN (Central Bank of Nigeria) introduce what they called cash policy to reduce the quantity of transaction been done with cash. One of the response of Nigerian banks to the policy was the introduction of mobile ussd code which enables you to perform just about any financial transaction on your mobile phone. As a customer, you can use uba ussd code to transfer funds, buy airtime, check account, pay bills etc.

Less than a decade ago, all these were impossible except you visit a banking hall during the working hours. If not, you will have to wait for the next working day. Financial transaction in the weekend and public holiday was almost impossible.

What about how mobile banking code helped eliminate the stress of looking for recharge card when we want to make call or how it made intra and inter bank transaction easier, faster and safer for Nigerians.
