Mr. Dele Adeyinka, The Chairman, Committee of e-Banking Industry Heads and Chief Digital Officer of Wema Bank Plc, has said there is need to increase the adoption of e-payment and alternate channels.
He said “There is a tag line that we have in CeBIH, it says we want to drive excellence and dynamism through collaboration. My major role and that of other members of the executive committee as we immediately took the leadership of CeBIH is to emphasize that aspect of our tag line that resonates collaboration. We want to use collaboration to achieve much more than ever before”.
“As individual or member banks, we can achieve a lot but as an association or committee, we will achieve much more, if we collaborate. So we are bringing all players and stakeholders together, and we are using that force of collaboration to help us achieve much more. We are going round, and we are involving all stakeholders in what we do. By the way, on a monthly basis, we hold our meetings and we engage all stakeholders within the month. As much as possible, we ensure that all the gaps that we have identified are properly filled”.
“We encourage ourselves to leverage our collective strength to see how we can achieve the Payment System Vision 2020 together. And ultimately, it will affect our businesses, our banks and consumers positively; because ultimately, they will be the beneficiaries”.
This is because once our consumers adopt the usage of e-payment and alternate platforms, the business will grow and our individual banks will benefit from it; the revenue lines will increase; the industry and the nation as a whole will benefit.
He says we can achieve the Payment System Vision 2020 together which will affect our businesses, our banks and consumers positively; because ultimately, they will be the beneficiaries.
