In a report by The Nation, the partnership will increase the card payment options available to customers on the Remita platform.
“We continually seek out viable opportunities and partnerships that expand functional coverage of Verve’s physical and digital tokens, and such collaboration as this is testament to that relentless drive.
“It is an exciting development, not only for us as an organisation, but more essentially to millions of Verve customers, as it means there are now even more things they can do with their Verve cards and digital tokens.
“More so, this partnership further consolidates our service footprint across the Nigerian and African financial ecosystem and guarantees that more customers would enjoy the benefits that accrue from using a Verve card,” Mike Ogbalu said.
Meanwhile, the Divisional Head, Products, Services and International Business at SystemSpecs, owners of Remita, Demola Igbalajobi, said the e-payment platform also serves as a strategic partnership.
