United Bank for Africa is one of the best and largest banks in Nigeria and many other African countries. It offers multiple methods for transferring money from one account to another. Here are the simple options you can use.
How to transfer money using UBA ATM

But if you find yourself near an ATM, you can easily use it to transfer money from your UBA account to another one at UBA.
Just take your UBA-issued Verve or MasterCard, put it in the ATM, input your PIN, select ‘Quickteller’ and choose the ‘Transfer’ option. Then follow the on-screen prompts to finish your transaction. In a few minutes, the person on the other end will get the money you sent, easy as that.
