The United Bank for Africa(UBA) has presented the cobranded ID card to Usmanu Dan Fodio University, Sokoto(UDUS).

The presentation was made on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, at the conference held at Vice-chancellor's complex, which featured the presence of the university management, UBA representatives, Students' Union representatives, representatives of Students' associations, campus journalists and the university management

The initiative by the UBA group is to introduce a cobranded ID card that will serve as both a prepaid VISA card and also a student's ID card at the same time.

The digital head, of UBA,Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara branch, Mr Austin Obibi while delivering the speech noted that,
"UBA provides a prepaid payment card which is set up without the need for you to have a bank account with UBA. A prepaid card is an electronic wallet in which you put funds into and spend.

This is both the UBA and Usmanu Dan Fodio University coming together to brand a product that has an international standard.
The card has a unique 'chip and pin' technology which secures the card. This reduces the potential for fraud.

In cases of card misplacement, the card can be blocked or better still, the cash in the card can be transferred from the misplaced card to another. This can be done via the website: www.myubaafricard.com.

This website offers the direct control of the card, it has records of all card transactions and this reduces the cost of cash management.

The co-branded card will have an identification number at the bottom right of the card. This serves as an account number to enable the transfer of funds into the card


The cobranded card has transaction limit of N300,000 and N50,000 depending on the KYC(depending on the transaction of users either low or high KYC).

The validity of the card is 3 years,but students whose their course of study exceeds the stipulated year or students that have spill-over will have their I.D cards renewed" she said

He also noted that the card would serve as “multiple identification purposes where staff members and students would no longer have to carry multiple cards such as Library identification cards, clinic identification cards, club identification cards and hostel cards.”

However, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor(DVC) Academic, Prof. A.G. Yahya clarified that the university management is yet to adopt the cobranded ID card and that the university management would negotiate with the representatives of the Bank and reach a conclusion that will favour the students

The UBA group who are the pioneers of NIMC National e-ID card(prepaid) hopes to bring the same partnership into the university system.

The regional head, SKZ branch, Mrs Aisha Na'Allah while Speaking on the partnership with higher institutions explained that, success had been recorded in the previous partnerships with other institutions and that the adoption of the cobranded ID card would elevate the university to the digital world, she said:

"We are here to present an opportunity for the university to be part of the digital drive that is happening across the world. It is common knowledge that the digital arena is taking the space across the world, and anybody who would belong to this world in this era must be digitally serviced.

" For UBA education is a foremost consideration. You are a highly intellectual institution, so we have a lot on the stake for educational institutions.

The Dean, Student Affairs, Professor Aminu Mode while giving the closing remark , noted some of the previous immense contributions of the UBA Bank to the university and pointed out that the introduction of the new cobranded ID card would digitalise the university system.
