United Bank for Africa Plc (UBA) is a Multinational pan-African financial services group headquartered in Lagos and known as Africa’s Global Bank.
It has subsidiaries in 20 African countries and offices in London, Paris and New York. In December 2021, UBA received its banking license to commence operations in the UAE.
It is listed as commercial bank by the Central Bank of Nigeria. The shares of stock of the group are listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange, where they trade under the symbol: UBA.
The Group Chairman of the bank is Tony Elumelu and the GMD/CEO is Oliver Alawuba.
Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) codes introduced by Nigerian banks in collaboration with mobile networks now being used more than ever for simple bank transactions such as transferring
money, buying airtime and checking bank balance.
The services offered by these short codes vary and not all banks have fully joined this new trend in mobile banking that does not require an internet enabled smartphone or a mobile application.
Although the Mobile App is recommended as it provides more security, information and prevents mistakes – short codes will still be used because it’s much faster and easier.
Incase you’re unsure of what bank USSD codes are, I’m referring to:
*737# by GTBank, *426# by Diamond bank, *894*AMOUNT# by First Bank for buying airtime only and others.
CODE TO CHECK UBA ACCOUNT BALANCE WITHOUT INTERNET
United Bank for Africa (UBA) customers now have a USSD code too. Right now the code can only link your BVN to your account, Buy airtime credit to your phone and also display your Bank Account balance.
Hopefully more services will be added soon.
Note: First time users of this code will be required to enter a 4 digit PIN which restricts access from other users of your phone. Use 4 digits you can easily remember or contact UBA customer care for a PIN reset.
