Vanguard Online Edition : Hi Tech:-SmartPAY disclaim competitor's claim, 2 July 2003 [cached]
Mr. Alex Nwuba, Managing Director of SmartPay in a swift reaction to the claims during an informal media lunch date held recently in Lagos, described the claims as "lacking in authenticity".
This, he said, is because the MasterCard scheme, being first a reputable payment company, has no room for a third-party involvement in electronic transactions." If MasterCard wants to come to Nigeria, they will come here as MasterCard International, without a front other than the affiliation they will have with the payment companies (in this case, the banks) that will be participating in the scheme".
This statement, which is actually the standard policy of all top global e-payment (or Card based payment) solution providers like Visa, American Express, ETN etc, is the direct opposite of the claims to franchise acquisition as alleged by Card Technologies.
Reacting also to the said report's allegation that SmartPAY is approaching ValuCard (another player in the card based payment solution in the local market) to guarantee the former's survival in the impending "competition", Mr. Nwuba described that as the figment of the author's imagination.
His words: "SmartPAY has always been a fair player in the market despite our superiority in technology and strategy, and we have also tried to encourage cooperation in order to grow the market.
The only opening left for MasterCard, as stated by Mr. Nwuba, is the international or foreign travellers market.Even at that, he emphasized that in all other countries where MasterCard is accepted like USA, UK and Europe, some local players are still thriving.

Alex Nwuba, CEO of Smartpay lend some credence to this fear when he said: "SMS based mobile banking is subject to manipulation, any GSM network employee with the right access can send a text message using the GSM number of the bank, after having reviewed the message format in other messages stored on the server.
Mr. Nwuba however agreed that there has evolved modern ways of doing safe Mobile banking which he said no one is doing now.

According to the Chief executive of 3i Aviation, Alex Nwuba, the firm's assembly plant would help to revive dying airports that before now had suffered limited flight service, while the idea would support agriculture, advertising and economic development.
To address the peculiar Nigerian market challenges with limited aviation gas, Nwuba noted that the aircraft engines would operate on automotive fuel and should see about four years of use on average before an overhaul.
He reiterated that business people could now learn to operate and own a private aircraft and could get more done and most importantly the project would revive Nigeria's dead general aviation sector.
Nwuba, who was a former managing director of Associated Airlines, disclosed that his firm had also concluded arrangement to establish one assembly site, two flight training centres with the capacity to create as many as 500 high paying technology jobs.
