He explained that the i-Trans is a countrywide domestic funds transfer product that operates through a network of rural and community banks and ARB Apex Bank branches.

?It is fast, efficient, reliable and very convenient to traders and businessmen who do business in the remotest parts of the country,? he noted.

He called on the general public and the business community operating in the rural and semi-urban areas to patronize the product and eliminate avoidable losses caused by highway robbery, among others.
