Wema Bank unveils new banking platform
Wema Bank Plc yesterday announced the official launch of its special Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) banking platform *945#.
The bank’s former USSD code has been upgraded with more features to benefit both existing and potential Wema Bank customers. The USSD is a GSM communication technology that sends text messages between mobile phones and network platforms.
Speaking at a briefing to introduce the latest addition to Wema Bank’s long list of value propositions to the general public, Mr. Dele Adeyinka, Head of e-Business at Wema Bank Plc, stated that the Wema Bank family is excited about this new development and stated that the 945 USSD platform will enable customers and non-customers alike gain easy and simple access to banking solutions from wherever they are.
“Everyone can access the simple banking solutions provided by *945#” Adeyinka stated. “*945# provides services like airtime top-up, account opening, money transfer, cash-onthe-go, payment of bills, and balance enquiry”.
According to him, new and existing Wema Account Holders also stand a chance to win lots of prizes by using the code in the days following this launch.
Unveiling the USSD easy-banking code, Mr. Segun Oloketuyi, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Wema Bank Plc, disclosed that 945 was derived from 1945, the year the bank was established.
