Ecobank Nigeria has commenced a youth engagement programme in tertiary institutions across Nigeria as part of efforts to deepen financial inclusion by banking the youth.
The initiative, themed: “Ecobank Xpress Campus Storm” will avail students of tertiary institutions the opportunity to open the Ecobank Xpress account, a digital account that requires no documentation, minimum balance or paperwork, simply by downloading the Ecobank Mobile app.
With the Ecobank Xpress account, students will be able to access financial services such as airtime top up, funds transfer and bill payment from their mobile devices. Parents and Guardians will also be able to transfer money to their children or wards‘ Xpress accounts which they can withdraw without a card at any Ecobank ATM or Xpress Point.
The first phase of this initiative will cover 24 universities, polytechnics and colleagues of education across the country.
Flagging off the programme, Executive Director Consumer Banking, Ecobank Nigeria, Carol Oyedeji, said the activation is to empower young people by offering them convenient, affordable and accessible financial services anytime, anywhere from their mobile. She reiterated that it was in line with the bank’s strategy to make banking available to the hitherto unbanked and under-banked in support of the Central Bank of Nigeria’s financial inclusive drive.
