Customers in 25 countries in Europe can send pounds and euros to any Nigerian bank in under 5 minutes via the Azimo mobile apps. 

The World Bank estimates that global remittances will decline by up to 20% in 2020 as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, a scenario that will have a dramatic effect on the Nigerian economy. Remittances to Nigeria totalled nearly USD 25 billion in 2019 and account for around 6% of the country’s GDP, meaning any decline will leave millions of Nigerian families worse off, according to a company press release.
