According to Mr Bisi Onasanya, Group Managing Director, FirstBank, â€œwith the inauguration of this service, the stage is now set for the bankâ€™s customers and anyone in Nigeria with a mobile phone to enjoy financial services, using their mobile phones to send money, pay bills, top up their phone airtime, do shopping, deposit and withdraw cash, without the need to visit a bank branch.â€
He added that Firstmonie services were created with three principles in mind. â€œThe first is defined by how consumers receive money to fund their unique lifestyles; how consumers spend money for their unique lifestyle needs; and thirdly, the ability of the consumer to be informed and in control of their money,â€
