#citizensInformationSeries - Bank Code to always Remember (First Bank Nigeria)


First Bank of Nigeria Plc offers mobile payment services to the banked and unbanked customers through its Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) known as *894#. The USSD is a protocol used by GSM cellular telephones to communicate with the service provider’s computers. The USSD Gateway is based on the ability of the delivery agent or the source to send and receive USSD messages.

894 is a quick, convenient, secure and easy way to perform your banking transactions (transfer money, check balance, buy airtime, pay bills, etc) anytime and anywhere, using any type of phone without need for internet connectivity or data. Once you have a FirstBank account with a linked debit card, a phone number profiled for SMS alert and a mobile phone, you are just one dial away from enjoying the 894 experience.
