AirtelTigo congratulates the Bank of Ghana, the Ghana Interbank Payment and Settlement Systems Limited (GhIPSS) and all stakeholders on the implementation of mobile money interoperability.
“We welcome this giant step which will help our customers and all Ghanaians to enjoy increased convenience to send and receive money from one mobile wallet to another across networks in real time and reduce fraudulent transactions,” said the CEO for AirtelTigo, Ms Roshi Motman.
“We believe this implementation will play a key role in enhancing the use of mobile financial services and deepen financial inclusion,” she added.
She encouraged innovation in the industry and said the company will continue to collaborate with the regulator – the Bank of Ghana and all other stakeholders to ensure the principles for interoperability are achieved.
Since the launch this morning, AirtelTigo has gone live on interoperability. Customers can now send and receive money on any network or Bank account on their AirtelTigo Mobile Money wallet.
