Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

It all started with GT Bank, but since last year many banks in Nigeria has joined the list. Recharging your mobile phone with airtime is becoming easier. I can’t remember the last time I bought a physical recharge card. By just dialing some short codes on your mobile phone, you can top up your airtime as much as #5000 Naira within a day. Gone are the days you will be stranded because of having no where to purchase a recharge card/pin. On the other hand, if your boyfriend or girlfriend is reading this, that means you can’t give excuse of “no where to by airtime” to them anymore when they ask for airtime.

Today we will list all available USSD codes for topping up your mobile phone airtime from all Nigerian banks that offer the service currently.
