We all have mobile phones, and in it is inserted a SIM. In Nigeria, there are four dominant networks which are MTN, GLO, 9Mobile, and Airtel. Out of these networks, MTN is one of the most widely used. Without SIMS, we won't be able to do our daily business transactions, calls, and browse the internet.There was a piece of important information released today by Punch that would be useful to MTN subscribers. As Punch Newspapers doesn't publish fake news, they are one of the most trusted and respected platforms in Nigeria.
The information was concerning MTN subscribers who have been trying to use USSD codes to recharge their lines through their bank accounts. Normally, if you have funds in your account, you can buy airtime from it using a specific code. Unfortunately, this can not happen again as some commercial banks have cut-off that action.
For every action, there must be a reason. The banks embarked on that action because MTN reduced the banks' commission from 3.5% to 2.5%. According to a source, it was reported that the cut-off occurred at mid-night, so customers were taken unaware without any prior information.
