Nigerians react to Tijani requests
"It's a small change that has a big impact on convenience, made life so much easier. Now, I can easily access services across different mobile networks without memorizing different codes."
"Seamless, I don't have to memorize dozens of USSD codes, irrespective of how many mobile Sim cards I have got."
