Reactions from Twitter users
"The suffering is too much, the scenes are awful we are all embarrassed seeing these."
"How do you go cashless when you charge customers whenever they use the card? Every countries practicing or encouraging a cashless policy protest free transactions except Nigeria."
"It is a good initiative but there is need for banks to work on their bandwidth as not all of their networks can handle high influx of transactions ..last few days have been hell.. alot of them experience downtime."
"What if I want to buy pure water 10 Naira, I will still use POS??"
