In this post we will be showing you the transfer codes of all banks in Nigeria and how you can properly use them.

Have you ever been in a situation whereby you need to transfer money urgently to someone or you need to load airtime on your phone but there is not internet access to access your bank’s online banking platform and there is no ATM around? If yes then you will understand how frustrating the situation is.

Last week I went on a supervision at a construction site. I was barely getting to the site when my assistant who I had sent to purchase some samples for a presentation called me that the money on him wont be enough for the purchase. I told him not to worry that I will transfer the balance to him immediately.

After I hung up I discovered that there is no internet reception anywhere in the area so I won’t be able to access both the mobile and internet banking. Realizing the urgency of the situation I discovered that the only thing that can help me at that point is to use my bank’s transfer code to transfer the money.

Unfortunately, I didnt know the transfer code off-hand so I had to call my assistant and told him to help me sent the code as text message.

Therefore, to help people who may be in a similar situation anytime from now, I am writing the post so as to give you all the USSD codes for transfer of all banks in Nigeria. This will help answer questions like How do I transfer money from USSD code?

If you want to know how you can make withdrawal from the ATM without your ATM card read this post where we gave a comprehensive guide on how to go about it “How To Withdraw From The ATM Without a Card“.
