More and more people are sending money to Nigeria with mobile apps, a trend which is set to continue.

Prior to COVID-19, mobile and online remittances made up only 15-20% of the total with the majority being sent offline through physical stores. The pandemic has accelerated the move by customers to mobile money sending apps, like Oya Money Transfer, with more people now embracing the advantages of sending money on their mobile phones.
