Nigerians Will Now Pay N6.98k For Every USSD Transaction Carried Out

Published

By

A few days ago, telecom operators withdrew the USSD shortcode service bank from their platform which means customers would have huge challenges in carrying out financial transactions via the USSD platforms.

As of today, Nigerians will now pay N6.98k for every USSD transaction carried out from their mobile phone. The price replaced the former per session billing structure for USSD transactions.

USSD

According to CBN “Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) have had protracted disagreements concerning the appropriate USSD pricing model for financial transactions.

“This resulted in the accumulation of outstanding fees for USSD services rendered leading to potential service withdrawal by the MNOs.” “We are pleased to announce that after comprehensive deliberations on the key issues, a resolution framework acceptable to all parties was agreed thus:

 “Effective March 16, 2021, USSD services for financial transactions conducted at Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) and all CBN – licensed institutions will be charged at a flat fee of N6.98 per transaction. “This replaces the current per session billing structure ensuring a much cheaper average cost for customers to enhance financial inclusion.

 With the latest announcement by the CBN, it appears that the banks and telcos have resolved to put the brunt of the cost on the users contrary to the NCC initial directive.

This means that Nigerians will pay even more than the N4 they were initially complaining about. Starting from today, users of USS D will have to pay N6.98 per transaction.

However, it is still unclear who will collect the charges, banks, or telecommunications.

You are probably aware that a lot of fake news has been spreading fast this days and one of the medium used to spread this news is on WhatsApp.

WhatsApp is adding additional restriction to curb the spread of fakenews on its platform… According to what Facebook owned messaging platform said today, that any message that has been forwarded five or more times will now face a new limit that will prevent a user from forwarding it to more than one chat (contact) at a time.

If you can recall, sometimes last year, the messaging app rolled out a feature that limits people from forwarding a message to more than 5 persons at once which led to a 25% decrease in message forwards globally at the time.

WhatsApp says that the company has seen a significant increase in the number of forwarded messages and it might lead to the spread of fake information during this lockdown period. As a result, it is introducing a limit so that these messages can only be forwarded to one chat at a time.

Apart from this, to help users with correct information, WhatsApp is working directly with the governments, WHO, NGOs and over 20 national health ministries.

Before you forward any message to anybody, it is important you verify the information if it is right or fake…atleast google is just a few seconds away from giving you the answers you need.

The update is already available, you can update to have the new feature.
