The Head, Consumer Marketing, Ecobank Nigeria, Ikechukwu Kalu, has said that the bank’s offerings enable seamless payments for school fees and other purchases by parents and guardians as their wards resume for the new academic year.
In a statement, Kalu said Ecobank had been providing services to support both local and international schools fees payments at very good rates; personal loans to help with school fees payments and the Ecobank versatile mobile app to support school fees and other related payments, done in an easy, fast and convenient way.
While speaking on the ‘Back to school’ initiative of Ecobank, he stated that apart from personal loans, the bank had a mix of digital payment options including its fast and convenient Internet banking service.
He stated, “As a bank that has the interest of its customers at heart especially this period when schools resume, we have put in place personal loans to help parents and guardians pay school fees for their children and wards.
“Also, we have put in place convenient, accessible and reliable digital payment solutions like the Ecobank mobile app for shopping and school fees payment. We have got your back covered this new school year.”
Kalu urged the various schools to appoint the bank as their collecting financial institution to remove stress of delayed money transfer from them.
He stressed that Ecobank had demonstrated expertise in fee collection, locally and internationally.
He urged schools and individuals that were yet to open accounts with the bank to do so in order to access the services offered by the bank.
