MTN, in a statement signed by the company’s secretary, Uro Ukpanah on Monday, revealed that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) granted the company its final approval to operate as Momo Payment Service Bank Limited (Momo PSB).

“The date of commencement will be communicated to the CBN (Central Bank of Nigeria) in accordance with its requirements”, the statement said.

“MTN Nigeria affirms its commitment towards the financial inclusion agenda of the CBN and the Federal Republic of Nigeria and we are excited at this opportunity to support its fulfilment,” it added.
