Nigerians adopt mobile wallets to scale bank charges

Mobile money wallets were mainly used by agents and Point of Sale, PoS, operators for business purposes.

However, the tradition of performing physical banking transactions is gradually going into extinction, as many Nigerians are now adopting the use of mobile wallets.
