Wema Bank Money Transfer
Before Wema Bank introduced USSD codes, customers needed to go to the bank or ATM machine in order to transfer money. Alternatively, they had to download and register on the Wema mobile app. But right now you don’t have to go through that stress; all you need to do now is dial a simple code on the mobile phone number linked with your bank account.
