The bank’s founder / COO, Mr. Hamid Joda, said this in a statement in Abuja on Monday.

The (NAN) reports that the NQR payment solution is a secure QR code-based payment and collection platform developed for merchants and customers to receive and make payments easily and securely.

Joda said the NQR will also create a seamless payment experience for the bank’s rapidly growing retail and business customers in their banking transactions.

“We are delighted that this payment channel is being introduced into the country’s financial system as a complement to other innovative solutions that we have deployed in recent months.

“This is proof that, as we said in our signature line of communications, TAJBank’s interest is still in our clients,” he said.

Meanwhile, the bank’s chief marketing officer and co-founder, Mr. Sherif Idi, said the deployment of the NQR payment solution would revolutionize the electronic payment experience.

Idi added that this would open up new frontiers for small, medium and large companies which were the main stakeholders of the bank.

He has secured the bank’s track record of growth and innovation and delivering quality customer service.

He said the NQR solution is open to all of the bank’s customers, merchants and individuals, across all of its branches and digital channels around the world.
