First Bank of Nigeria Limited, in furtherance of the need to expand diaspora remittance inflow into the country, has increased its network of International Money Transfer Operators (IMTOs), targeted at easing the accessibility of its customers to receive money from close to 100 countries across the world in a safe and secured manner.
Lovetvnews Nigeria reports that with over 750 branches across the country, customers can receive money from the nearest FirstBank branch closest to them.
Mr. Gbenga Shobo, the Deputy Managing Director, while reiterating the Bank’s resolve in promoting diaspora remittances, regardless of where one is across the globe, said: “at FirstBank, expanding our network of International Money Transfer Operators is in recognition of the significant roles diaspora remittances play in driving economic growth such as helping recipients meet basic needs, fund cash and non-cash investments, finance education, foster new businesses, and debt servicing.
“We are excited about these partnerships, as it is essential to ensure our customers are at an advantage to receive money from their loved ones and business associates, anywhere they are, across the world.”
This online news medium learnt that according to Shobo, over the years, FirstBank has been in partnership with Western Union, MoneyGram, Ria, Transfast, and WorldRemit.

Shobo emphasised that beneficiaries can receive remittance in US dollars in any of our over 750 branches spread across the country. Customers without an existing domiciliary account can have dollar account automatically created for their remittances.
“You can also receive inflow directly into your account through Western Union”.
