USSD Codes in Nigeria

USSD Codes in Nigeria

Here is the list of all the new unified USSD short codes in Nigeria approved by the Nigerian Communications Commission for all mobile networks (MTN, Glo, 9mobile, and Airtel) in Nigeria. The harmonized shortcodes (HSC) will work across all mobile networks in the country. This will help you enjoy all networks in Nigeria and all codes will work effectively as assured by the NCC.

New USSD  Codes in Nigeria

The New USSD shortcodes cut across all networks in Nigeria. No network provider will have a different shortcode in use. For example, you access the “Borrow services” by USSD Code *303#. This means “USSD Code *303#” will be the shortcode for borrowing services across all the networks (MTN, Glo, 9mobile, and Airtel) in Nigeria and the code for recharging a line is now the same across all mobile networks.

With this new initiative from NCC, Nigerians will not have to memorize a lot of USSD Codes because the same short code for Network B will be used for Network Z. This experience will improve consumer quality of experience.
