AIRTEL Nigeria was granted a  full super-agent licence by the Central Bank of Nigeria(CBN).



Recall that this is the sixth month after the telecoms firm announced that it had secured the licence in-principle.



In a statement entitled:’’ Nigeria  Super-Agent Full Licence Approval’’ signed by Simon  O’ Hara, the Company  Secretary means Airtel has a full super-agent licence to operate as an agency network.



Super agents are businesses b that have been licensed by the CBN to recruit agents for agency banking, which involves providing financial services to communities on behalf of banks in order to increase financial inclusion.





The super-agent licence is distinct from the Payment  Service  Bank(PSB) Licence for which MTN received approval in principle on November 4, 2021.










The statement  filed  with  the NGX reads:’’ Further  to our announcement  of 15 November 2021, Airtel Africa, a leading  provider  of telecommunications and mobile money  services, with a presence  in 14 countries across Africa, today confirms  that the Central Bank  of Nigeria(CBN) has awarded  its subsidiary, Airtel  Mobile  Commerce Nigeria Limited, with a  full super-agent licence.’’
