Remita Payment Services Limited (RPSL), Africa’s foremost payment solutions company and a subsidiary of Systemspecs Group, was adjudged the winner of the “Payment Service Provider Of The Year ” award by the CBN.
The award was presented on the 24th of October, during the celebration of one year since the launch of the e-Naira themed “eNaira365days.”
The award serves as a testament to the company’s efforts in raising awareness about the e-naira initiative by being the first payment platform to offer its usage to Nigerians.
In a similar development, the very next day, the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), the policy implementing arm of the Federal Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy of Nigeria, recognised Systemspecs with the “Indigenous Technology Promotion – Software” award at its NITDA 2022 Award for exemplary commitment to the development of homegrown technology to address local challenges.
The CBN award was received by RPSL’s Chief Technology Officer, Mojib Ishola, in Lagos, whilst that of NITDA was received in Abuja by Abayomi Oniku, Divisional Head Business Development, and Hussein Akinkuolie, Group Head, Partnership & Special Initiatives.
“On behalf of the management and staff of Remita Payment Services Limited, we are extremely honoured to receive such an important award for our advancement of payment solutions in the country.
“Awards like this only propel us to keep improving on our services as we reinstate our commitment to delight our stakeholders.” said Mojib.
At the latter event in Abuja, Abayomi Oniku expressed gratitude to NITDA on behalf of Remita by giving a heart-warming acceptance speech. In his words, “we dedicate this award to every Nigerian innovator doing their best to catalyse the development of the economy.”
Remita, the flagship product of RPSL, possesses the unique ability to transform the perception of payment systems in the market by offering nothing but quality services.
This was buttressed when Deremi Atanda, Managing Director of Remita Payment Services Limited (RPSL), expressed his delight at the one-year anniversary of the e-Naira.
He said: “It has always been our approach to focus on working tirelessly to simplify payments and drive financial inclusion by deploying topnotch solutions. Our fulfillment comes primarily from the satisfaction our various consumers derive from using our superior solutions.
“However, when we receive recognitions such as these from the country’s apex regulatory bodies, we are even further encouraged to deliver more.”
Remita has gained recognition as a leading financial technology company since it first entered the market 17 years ago. Remita enables people, businesses, and governments in Africa to easily receive and send payments on a single multibank multichannel platform.
In 2017, Remita was honoured as the Most Innovative Mobile Payment Solution of the Year at the DigitalPay Expo Awards in recognition of its contribution to the improvement of the payment processing experiences of individuals and businesses in the country. This is one amongst the several recognitions and awards bagged by the company in the past.
