Nigerian fintech plans expansion across Africa, wins two tech awards


A Nigeria-based financial technology company, Global Accelerex (Accelerex) has said its credo will remain prioritising the market needs of customers as it expands to other parts of Africa.

The company in a statement on Thursday said the expansion would enable it to create more unique products and solutions to suit its customers’ businesses.

“We derive pleasure in providing financial technology needs of our customers beyond their expectations and our expansion will see us doing more of this,’’ the Managing Director, Mr. Kayode Ariyo, said in the statement.

Ariyo said the company has demonstrated its leadership in the financial technology industry by clinching the FinTech Services Provider of the Year and Customer Focused ICT Company of the Year awards at the 12th edition of the Beacon of Information and Communication Technology (BoICT) Awards, which was held in Lagos during the week.

While speaking on the awards, he said, “We are honoured and humbled by this recognition. The fact that our two critical areas of focus were acknowledged by a public jury is proof that we are doing something right and this makes us proud.

“These awards are dedicated to our valued customers that deemed us worthy of being recipients and to Accelerex staff that constantly push boundaries to ensure that our customers always enjoy a stellar experience.”
