EXPLAINER: How To Use USSD Code For ENaira

Governor Godwin Emefiele of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), on Thursday, August 18, 2022, introduced the Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) code for its digital currency, eNaira.

Newsrand recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari, in October 2021, launched eNaira as Africa’s first Central Bank Digital Currency. However, while the first phase of the launch was focused on banked users, the second phase borders on financial inclusion.

Talking about eNaira, Emefiele stated that “as captured in the design paper released, eNaira is a journey, not a one-time event. This hackathon event is a continuation of that journey and the first among many to come given that the future of central banking is inextricably bound in innovation.

“We don’t have a choice but to live with the fact that we are now in a digital economy. In a digital space where the use of cash will dissipate to almost zero and the use of digital currency will increase and will now become part of our lives.

“The second phase of the project has begun and is intended to drive financial inclusion by onboarding the unbanked and the underserved users leveraging offline channels. Hence greater success is envisioned for the project with phase two expected to deliver more gains with the target of eight million users based on estimation using the diffusion of innovation model.”
