NIBSS, banks, Telcos unveil mobile payment solution, mCash | VAS2Nets Technologies

The Nigeria Interbank Settlement Scheme, NIBSS in collaboration with all the money deposit banks in Nigeria and the four major telecommunications operators, Etisalat, MTN, Airtel and Globacom, has launched a new mobile money payment solution.

Known as mCash, the new mobile money solution will facilitate low value retail payments; grow e-payments by providing accessible electronic channels to a wider range of users and to further enhance financial inclusion in Nigeria, by extending e-payment benefits to payers and merchants at the bottom of the pyramid where usage of cash has been predominant.

The mCash utilizes Unstructured Supplementary Service Data, USSD code in payment processing. Merchants can deploy mCash as a payment channel by registering with their banks, who will issue them an 8-digit seller code which buyers or payers need to use while making payments to them.

A customer who wants to make payments through mCash, has to dial the universal code, *402*SellerCode*Amount#. Upon dialing the code, the name of the seller will appear and a list of banks a customer wishes to make payments from. The user can then select a bank and input passcode to authenticate and complete the transaction. Upon completion of the transaction, both the buyer and the seller will receive flash confirmation of debit and credit messages instantly.

However, only mobile numbers linked to a user’s BVN are allowed for mCash transactions.

Although all the banks have signed up to integrate into the solution, at the moment, only six banks have been brought on-board and are active. These include: Diamond bank, Fidelity bank, Unity bank, Zenith bank, Sterling bank and Wema bank. First City Monument Bank, FCMB and Union Bank are expected to go live by this week.

Users are charged N20 per transaction through mCash for all transactions below N10, 000 while all transactions above N10, 000 cost N50 to both the merchant and the customer. Should transactions fail a resolution is guaranteed within six hours.

At the launch in Lagos, the MD/CEO of NIBSS, Mr. Ade Shonubi said: “The whole intention of mCash is to broaden the opportunity for people who rely mostly on usage of cash to find convenient means of making payments electronically.

The CBN has been pushing the cashless initiative for a long time and we have seen significant gains but a lot of people who have benefited so far have been the banking customers. And we need to deepen and reach out to a lot more people, as we begin to make real the dream for financial inclusion and as we begin to realize that a lot of government’s social programme will touch a different set of people.

malaria_special_2

 

Last weekend, the Federal government said that it has stepped up vigilance within the drug supply chains in the country after it discovered the circulation of two confirmed falsified versions of Quinine Sulphate.

A statement said the Federal ministry of Health received a medical alert that the two falsified drugs contain zero active pharmaceutical ingredients.

The statement signed by Mrs Boade Akinola, director, Media and Public Relations of the ministry, on Saturday said the drugs were circulating in West and Central Africa.

Akinola said the two version of the drug were circulating in Cameroon and Democratic Republic of Congo.

She said the quinine Sulphate was used in the treatment of malaria.

According to her, the implication of using the falsified one is that it will not be effective and may also lead to other health challenges.

She said one of the fake products was named Quinine Sulfate 300 mg with 1000 Tablets per container, Batch Number 10H05, expiry date 09/2018 and it manufactured 09/2014.

Akinola added that the drug manufactured by Novadina Pharmaceutical Limited, London, United Kingdom was first was discovered in Cameroon.

The director said the other version of the fake drug was Quinine Sulphate 300mg with 100 Tablets per container; batch F4387, expiry date 11/18 and its date of manufacture is 12/14.

She explained that the product was manufactured in India by CAD Pharm, and it was discovered in Bunia, Democratic Republic of the Congo.

She advised Nigerians to be vigilant and report to the nearest National Agency for Food and Drug Administration office anywhere the drugs were spotted including hospitals and pharmaceutical shops.

The ministry urges Nigerians to also report it the following GSM no +234-8037881120, +234-8055056727 and +234-8035902679.

“If you are in possession of these products, please do not use them.

“If you have taken this falsified product or if you suffer an adverse effect following its uptake, please seek immediate advice from a qualified healthcare professional and report the incident to NAFDAC.’’

Annular Eclipse to Occur All Over Nigeria Sept 1 | VAS2Nets Technologies

Annular eclipse

The National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA), has announced that an annular eclipse will be visible all over the country on Thursday, September 1.

Annular eclipse is the eclipse of the sun in which the edge of the sun remains visible as a bright ring around the moon. An annular eclipse occurs when the sun and moon are exactly in line, but the apparent size of the moon is smaller than that of the sun, hence, the sun appears as a very bright ring or annulus surrounding the dark disk of the moon.

In a press statement, the Head, Media and Corporate Communications of National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA), Dr Felix Ale, said the highest degree of obscurity in Nigeria during this natural occurrence would be in the Southern part of the country, particularly in Lagos

The annular eclipse is expected to occur between 7.15 a.m. and 10.03 a.m., with slight variations in actual timing across the country.

In Lagos, the first contact will occur at about 7.15 a.m., while the maximum eclipse will occur around 8.30 a.m. and will end by 10.03 a.m.

The eclipse is expected to commence in Abuja around 7.17 a.m., with maximum eclipse to be recorded at about 8.32 a.m. and the eclipse will end around 10.00 a.m.

NASRDA appealed to the general public not to panic or adduce any mystical interpretations to this event, it is also necessary to advise that nobody should observe eclipse with naked eyes.

Looking at the solar eclipse with naked eyes can lead to permanent damage to the eyes, as the obstruction does not reduce the luminosity of the sun.

Therefore, NASRDA has also concluded arrangements to provide limited number of special solar filters to members of the public to savour the rare natural occurrence in appreciation of science and nature.
