Jaiz Bank’s e-channels, tech to make Hajj Savings easier - MD
The Managing Director, Jaiz Bank Plc, Hassan Usman has said the Bank’s e-channels and technology are sufficient enough to capture all intending pilgrims to Hajj under the new Savings Scheme. Speaking at the launch and sensitisation of the Hajj Savings Scheme in Lokoja, Kogi State, Hassan said the Bank has invested in technology by deploying various platforms such as the mobile app, *773# USSD code and agent banking to be able to capture all the intending pilgrims with ease.
Represented by the Divisional Head, Corporate Services, Mallam Ismaila Adamu at the meeting, he said the bank is fully prepared for the hitch-free take off of the scheme in the state and country in general. In addition, he said the bank has 40 branches available nationwide in addition to the electronic platforms to capture the Hajj savers, adding that with such a scheme in place, intending pilgrims that do not have the wherewithal can gradually plan and actualize their dreams without stress.
Mr Hassan Usman, in the press release commended the stakeholders in Kogi State for their prompt response and commitment towards a successful implementation of the scheme in the state.
The Chairman of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON), Alhaji Zikirullah Kunle Hassan said the Commission in collaboration with the various State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Boards can leverage on the scheme to have the liquid funds required to effectively plan for the Hajj operations early, thereby securing better bargain for accommodation and other services for their pilgrims.
The Chairman of the Kogi State Hajj Commission, Sheik Abdullah Lukman said the scheme, will allow Muslim Ummah to prepare ahead of time, by making gradual deposits through Jaiz Bank plc, as part of the reforms in the Hajj system in the country. Participants agreed that the concept would make it easier for intending Muslim pilgrims to perform one of the five pillars of Islam, the Hajj.
Other stakeholders at the meeting included chief imams of various zones in the state, Federation of Muslim Women of Nigeria (FOMWAN), market leaders and other intending pilgrims.
