Ecobank Nigeria has dazed its Agency Banking partners; Xpress Point Agents with mouth-watering gifts. The Agents which cut across the six geo-political zones of the country were rewarded by the financial institution for their performances from January to September 2020.

Head, Agency Banking, Ecobank Nigeria, Nike Kolawole who announced the rewards in Lagos, said; “It is expedient to recognize and reward agents across the country for their tenacity, also knowing that they are helping to drive the Ecobank’s financial inclusion strategy in Nigeria. The agents are already commending the bank for the gesture.”

“A total of 18 agents were selected across the geopolitical zones of the country based on their transaction counts and value from January – September 2020. The winners were rewarded with 40 inch televisions while second and third winners went home with refrigerators and generating sets, respectively.”
“The aim of the Xpress Point is to let every Nigerian and household have access to Ecobank services within their neighbourhood to provide easy banking services.”

“We are happy  with our Xpress point agents, knowing they  are playing a critical role in helping us reach out to the unbanked and underbanked in the society. They are bringing more people to the banking space through their services.”

“They carry out financial transactions on our behalf and earn commission on every transaction processed. The consumer experience is very good as customers can do simple deposit, payment and transfers in their own neighbourhood rather than travel for hours to a bank branch.”

“The Xpress Point is also a channel that is also being used for the deployment of national social intervention programmes of the government.”

“The services offered by the Xpress point agents are; cash in, cash out, fund transfer, bills payment, airtime recharge, remittance and account opening, among others. The services are available for sole proprietors, partnerships, co-operative societies, microfinance banks, companies with large distribution network – like petrol stations, FMCGs, telecommunication companies, super agents, aggregators and unregistered businesses such as petty traders, hair saloon and others. Most of the agents that benefited from the reward scheme expressed appreciation to the bank with a promise to contribute more to the agency banking of the bank.”
