The service is being initially launched in partnership with Guaranty Trust Bank (GT Bank) with other banks to follow shortly. To use ‘Push and Pull’, customers need to simply dial *156#, select option 7 for Financial Services and follow the prompts. Customers will need to have their GT Bank account numbers on hand to complete the initial setup.
Speaking about the MoMo Push and Pull service, Christopher Ssali, Acting Head of Mobile Money said, “We are excited about MoMo ‘Push and Pull’ because our MTN MoMo subscribers can now avoid liquidity issues and having to stand in long lines at banks to access cash. The ever-expanding MoMo ecosystem, with hundreds of merchants, makes it easy and convenient for MoMo subscribers to pay for goods, services and even utility bills using MoMo.”
