Stanbic IBTC Bank has expressed its readiness for seamless financial transactions as the cashless policy by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) takes effect. The apex bank recently released a new policy on cash-based transactions that attracts a cash handling charge for daily cash transactions above N500,000 for individuals and N3 million for corporate organisations. The new policy aims to increase the adoption of electronic payments and reduce the amount of physical cash circulating in the economy. The apex bank stated that the policy encourages a reduction in the cost of banking services, drives financial inclusion, makes monetary policy effective in managing inflation, drives to modernise payment systems, and enables economic growth. In line with the policy, and reducing reliance on cash transactions while promoting financial inclusion by increasing the availability of electronic payment options, Stanbic IBTC Bank called on the public to take advantage of its existing digital solutions and payment platforms that have been tailored to meet the needs of its clients. Speaking on the policy and its benefits, head, Partnerships, Stanbic IBTC Bank, Omolara Osunsoko said, the digital evolution in the financial sector has seen increasing changes with a move towards technology-driven delivery channels. “The policy will be beneficial to consumers and merchants as we transit to a digital way of transacting that is convenient, secure and seamless. It will also help minimise financial risks and support business operations and reconciliation,” he stressed. Osunsoko also reiterated Stanbic IBTC’s commitment to financial inclusion over the years through digital and electronic solutions that simplify cashless transactions while offering an excellent banking experience for its customers. Head, Digital and eCommerce, Stanbic IBTC Bank, Olutimi Ibrahim, noted the bank’s commitment in supporting the Central Bank’s cashless policy initiative and living up to its responsibilities of innovating alternative payment solutions. He said: “at Stanbic IBTC,We are committed to easing our customers’ transition to a cashless society. We will continue collaborating closely with the CBN to ensure that Nigerians can access the financial services they require.”
